Haiti - FLASH : 3 schools attacked and burned in the South

The Ministry of Education says to be “Deeply concerned by the criminal attacks against schools in the South, notably in the national congregational schools St Joseph de Torbeck, Justin Lhérisson and Boisrond Tonnerre that were burnt…”

The Ministry denounces and condemns these criminal acts that jeopardize ongoing efforts to allow children to return to school after the devastating passage of Hurricane Matthew in early October 2016.

The Ministry announced that it had already instructed the competent authorities to carry out a prompt investigation in order to find the perpetrators of these crapulous acts and punish them with the utmost rigor, as prescribed by law. It invites “the population to vigilance and to protect school buildings… and recalls that schools must be protected in all circumstances by all citizens in order to allow access to the education of our children.”
