Here is a picture of the UN peacekeepers from Nepal that is according to many studies brought the strain of cholera to Haiti. The Cholera epidemic is responsible for the death of many people in Haiti. These studies has established a direct link between the arrival of the Nepalese UN battalion near the small town of Mirebalais and the cholera epidemic
The former Special Representative of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Haiti, Ricardo Seitenfus made the news once again by stating that the presence of United Nations in Haiti is illegal. MINUSTAH is operating in Haiti illegally.
Recently at a round table conference on Haitian election, Ricardo Seitenfus, the Brazilian professor and the former Special Representative of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Haiti has said that the existence of the United Nation in Haiti is illegal, because the presence of MINUSTAH in the country contravenes the Haitian constitution and some treaties signed by the country. And thus, the immunities that the UN enjoys, is illegal too. Earlier, professor Seitenfus had criticized the role played by MINUSTAH and Haitian friends groups in the matter of resolving political crises in Haiti. Nearly $8.6 billion have been spent on the UN mission's operation in the country, but unfortunately, different international communities, particularly MINUSTAH are persistently repeating the same mistake.
New development regarding Cholera victims in Haiti. U.S. government urged a federal judge to dismiss lawsuit filed against the United Nations by a group of Haitians who claim peacekeepers caused the devastating cholera epidemic on October 23, 2014
Citing that the Union Nations was immune from the claims made against it of introducing the deadly strain of cholera that has killed 8,500 people Haiti, the United States government urged District Judge J. Paul Oetken to throw out the the lawsuit against the U.N. The suit, which was filed in 2013 hasn't been met with much attention from the Ban Ki-moon-run U.N., which refuses to be served and refuses to appear to answer the claims in Manhattan federal court.
The Haitian Government has made a decision in regard to the current UN Peacekeeping force in Haiti and the threat of an Ebola epidemic. Haiti has suspended all troops rotation from Africa, in a move to prevent an outbreak of the Ebola epidemic.
On Thursday, October 16th, Haitian officials announced that the United Nations stabilization mission to Haiti has suspended sending troop rotation from Africa. This a preventive measure by the UN to keep the epidemic of deadly disease away from the Caribbean countries. The Haitian Health and Population Minister, Florence Duperval Guillaume has said that the UN will not send any more troops from African countries, affected by the Ebola epidemic. It is a precautionary measure for minimizing the risk of transportation of the disease. United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) has set up an isolation unit at one of its bases to take care of the Ebola victims or persons with symptoms of the disease. In 2010, U.N was held responsible for a cholera outbreak in Haiti. Then several scientific and medical investigation reports concluded that the most likely source of the outbreak was a leaking sewage system of a UN housing complex where some Nepalese peacekeepers were living and they carried the disease from 9,000 miles away, as it was present only in the northeastern region of the Indian subcontinent.
Here is a picture of the UN Peacekeeping Deputy Edmond Mulet as he blames Haiti Underdevelopment for Cholera's Spread.
It seems to me that Edmond Mulet forgets that the cholera in Haiti was triggered when sewage from infected peacekeepers from nepal was discharged into the water system.
A view of a Tanker Truck as it is dumping excrements taken from a nearby Nepalese U.N. base. Many believe that this sewage as traveled over 400 miles from nearby Nepalese base to contaminated the Artibonite river.
The Artibonite river is a major source of clean water most people in the region. They use the Artibonite river for fishing, washing, cooking and drinking. The picture is a courtesy of wehaitians.com
Congresswoman Waters sent UN Secretary General, Ki-moon, a letter regarding UN's response to Haiti's cholera epidemic.
Congress is disappointed UN has spent only $23.5 million dollars of the $2.2 billion Hispaniola Initiative requirement.
Ki-moon claimed UN has provided $140 million-plus dollars for cholera victims. He says cholera cases have lowered 90%, with the death toll at 1%.
Ki-moon reminded Congress UN bears no responsibility for compensating victims. A clause protects them from reimbursement lawsuits.
If a multinational corporation behaved the way the U.N. did in Haiti, it would be sued for huge amount of money
Mounting evidence suggests that the cholera outbreak is linked to a South Asian strand of cholera probably introduced by Nepalese troops as part of the UN peacekeeping mission, MINUSTAH.
Cholera is endemic in Haiti and projected to kill as many as 1,000 people a year until it is eradicated
All the families of the victims want is a formal apology, better sanitation and water infrastructure, and compensation to those affected
Under both international law and the specific agreement, the UN has broad immunity and refused to do anyone of them
