PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti – United Nations peacekeepers yesterday helped Haitian police capture 30 criminals who had escaped from prison following the January 12 catastrophic earthquake.
The prisoners had later infiltrated a camp for internally displaced persons in the capital.
Working with the Haitian National Police, more than 350 military and police staff serving with the UN stabilisation mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) raided the Jean-Marie Vincent camp for IDPs near the notorious Cité Soleil neighbourhood of Port-au-Prince.
The operation was the largest security action conducted by MINUSTAH since the 12 January quake, which killed an estimated 300,000 people and destroyed or substantially damaged the homes of millions of others. Many prison inmates also escaped from jail in the aftermath of the disaster.
In a statement, MINUSTAH said the raid was conducted following an upsurge in violence inside the IDP camp that was linked to the prison escapees.
Following the quake the UN Security Council authorised the mission to have an additional 15,000 UN Police (UNPOL) and 2,000 military personnel.

I am glad that people are starting to understand the structure of organized crimes put in place in Haiti to genociding the entire nation. It is at last time to stop Preval and his associates in their movements. By any means, we have to find the way to do do.And the most important thing, is to capture them and bring them to justice.If the world never forget Adolf Hitler, why could we tolerate assasins like These terrorist officials in Haiti? Be prepared anyway to give them what they deserve.
Moses has some good points.
We must not forget the gang leader Amaral Duclona who was sought by the MINUSTAH forces for his gang activity that included kidnapping, turture, rape and murder, on Preval’s orders. He killed two French citizens, ona a Consul, for Preval, plus another government employee who would not sign papers for a $100,000,000 deal that saw international community funds used to buy used equipment, instead of new.
When MINUSTAH was closing in, for an arrest, Jude Celestin, Preval intimate and boyfriend of Preval’s daughter, obtained a passport in another name for Duclona.
Then Duclona stayed in Preval’s sister’s house the night before he fled the county.
Duclona went into hiding in the Dominican Republic and received funds, from Preval/Celestin, via Western Union (of all things!!!)
MINUSTAH intercepted phone calls and gather the funding receipts. They finally arrested Duclona and he was extradited to France where he sang a song that implicated Preval, Celisten, the National Police and a gang of other notables.
The French have remained silent, and has MINUSTAH.
Their release of information would save the country a lot of trouble…..by showing what a criminal Preval is.
