Kidnapping In Haiti
The phenomenon of Kidnapping in Haiti is very serious. During the government of Jean-Bertrand Aristide and those that come after, the population of Haiti was introduced to this new problem where gangs would kidnap Haitian citizens, asking for huge amount of money to release them
Many attributed this new wave of crime in Haiti to the Haitians who have been living in the United States and were deported to Haiti for crime. Some also stated that the Haitian gangs involved in many of the kidnappings were in support of the actual government.
However, the Kidnapping phenomenon continued in Haiti long after the government of Aristide had left power
