A particularly degrading arrest for the image of the police, where the agents during the arrest exhibited the detainees as beasts, forcing them to fight and kiss in order to humiliate them… a scene that was filmed and whose video ended up on social networks, raising the indignation…
The Directorate General of the Haitian National Police (DGPNH), informed of the circulation on the social networks of this video, has strongly reacted in a note stating “[…] that it disapproves these deviant behaviors that do not correspond to the mage of this professional police that we want to build for the country. They are also not in conformity with the police practice within the Police Station even less to the good image that the institution seeks to project every day in the society.
Consequently, DGPNH wishes to inform the public that the Inspectorate General has already be instructed to conduct an investigation on this clear case of gross violation of human rights, in order to identify and punish the perpetrators and their accomplices.”
The three police officers present at the making of the video, have been onvened to the DGPNH.
