Haitian Police Dissolves Anti-Corruption March, Arrests Several People

PORT-AU-PRINCE – Haitian police dispersed on Sunday a demonstration against corruption and impunity organized by the political opposition in Port-au-Prince, arresting several people shortly after its start.

The march, held on the occasion of the International Anti-Corruption Day, had a small following and passed towards the Parliament when shots by unknown persons were heard.

The police responded by firing tear gas and arresting several people, leaving the mobilization dissolved.

At this new demonstration, the organizers again demanded that the government investigate the alleged misappropriation of Petrocaribe funds, a program by which Venezuela supplies oil to the country under soft conditions, and that those responsible be brought to justice.

Last month, the country’s capital was paralyzed for almost a week after a strike organized by an opposition group, which was followed by a massive mobilization that left several dead on Nov. 18, and then by more marches to demand clarification on the management of the Petrocaribe funds.
