Haitian Prime Minister writes CARICOM colleagues seeking help

Haiti’s Prime Minister Dr. Ariel Henry is urging the regional integration movement, of which his country is a member, to express solidarity and request assistance to alleviate what has been termed “the deepening humanitarian, security, political, and economic crises in Haiti”.

A statement issued by the Guyana-based CARICOM Secretariat said Henry had written to the leaders of the 15-member grouping on the issue facing the French-speaking country where criminal gangs have virtually brought the country to a standstill by blocking roads to fuel depots and launching rival gang war.

In addition, opposition politicians have been staging demonstrations calling for the removal of Henry, who came to power following the assassination in July last year of President Jovenel Moise. The opposition are demanding fresh presidential and other legislative elections.
