Chilean begins as UN peacekeeping chief in Haiti

The MERCURY News:PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haitiā€”A career Chilean diplomat has taken up his post as head of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Haiti.

Mariano Fernandez Amunategui (Ah-mu-NA-te-gee) is the special representative of U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. He replaces Edmond Mulet, a Guatemalan diplomat who left the job in late May.

Fernandez will oversee the U.N. mission that was sent to Haiti in 2004 to stabilize the poor Caribbean country after a violent rebellion toppled former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and sent him into exile.

The United Nations press office said Monday that Fernandez arrived in Haiti on Sunday.

  1. Edmund Mulet was an American citizen, I am sorry to say.

    He was a complete and total idiot, both times he served Preval in Haiti.

    Much of the continuing problem was caused by Mulet and his close, very close association with Preval and the Preval criminal elite.
