UAN Letter: 56/21 Haiti
To: Jovenel Moïse President of the Republic of Haiti Cc: His Excellency Wein-Weibert Arthus
29 May 2021
Dear Mr. President:
I am an engineer writing to you from London, Canada. I am very concerned for the safety of Milostène Castin. He has been attacked many times due to his activism. Most recently he and his family have been forced from their home due to a death threat (12 May 2021).
I call on you to fulfill your duty to protect Mr. Castin in accordance with his wishes. You must initiate an immediate and independent investigation to find and prosecute thos who intimidate and threaten M. Castin's family.
M. Castin is a human rights defender. He should be a source of pride for Haitians due to his perseverance and bravery. Please do all that you can to protect him and his family.
Sincerely, Shawn Nock
