Five Uruguay Peacekeepers Going To Jail Over Haiti Assault

The five Uruguayan MINUSTAH peacekeepers who sexually assaulted the Haitian boy in Port Salut are going to jail.

Haitian Prison Guards Les Cayes Haiti

They were indicted by a military tribunal in Uruguay.

How long is the jail sentence?

They were charged with disobeying orders, that is punishable by four months to four years of prison.

They were also charged with "dereliction of duty" What is that??? They could serve up to three years in prison for that.

I did look up "dereliction of duty" Incapacitation to peform your duties... This is usually what a soldier are charged with if he is cought sleeping while on-duty, getting drunk and being unable to perform his duties, or vacating his post contrary to regulations.


Like they say in America... Has justice been served?

Assuming that these peacekeepers did RAPE a young boy in Haiti, do you think the senence fits the crime?

The question here is " Are they really in jail " and if they are, did the punishment fit the crime?

One cannot forget that we haitians are seen as the poor black people and those guys of the Minustah feel like they are doing us haitians a big favor by being there.

So why not rape a few niggers, what would happen to us. That's what they're thinking and this rape is one that we know of, what about the ones that were not mentioned or should I say

It's a joke.They are using big words that don't mean anything to us.IN addition dereliction of duty doesn't carry the same charge as rape .which is punishable to 25 years of prison every where .What it has to be different in Haiti?

I can admit that we are very poor but we know our rights.The sentence is not enough.

After all it is clear that the presence of those peacekeepers is not for protection but for destruction.They have done enough harm .They have to go back where they came from. We need our space .Let's take care of our business to the best of our of knowledge.

We hope that they are really punished for their act. Those who are in such poverty dont have to have such treatment.

They need our compassion, assistance or help. Thank you Mr. Martelly.

Jean Pierre Alexandre,

My brother, we have too many bigger issues in Haiti to waste energy and money into violence.

This is a good sign. Prior President Martelly, Haitians would get murdered in neighboring D.R. and the perpetrators would get away with it because we had no voice, no one to fight for us. A cockroach like preval would say what the boy had no business in that room and would do nothing about it. Now we have a real president that will fight for the rights of all Haitians; not only at home, but

We should send a group of assassins over there to teach them a lesson.

We need assassins network just like the Israelis to protect our
