Church group decries political killings in Haiti

Catholic World News - November 14, 2013

A Catholic Church group in Haiti has denounced “the distribution of weapons in popular areas for political reasons,” the Fides news service reports.

Pointing to a list of 179 murders in recent weeks, and 53 apparently staged automobile accidents, the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace called for steps to disarm the civilian population. The group also criticized the Haitian judiciary, saying that judges were improperly appointed and subject to political influence so that they do not enjoy the independence needed to attack political crime.
