  1. Women in camps ‘regularly raped’

    Haiti: A delegation of US lawyers, health professionals and community activists who recently visited Haiti have warned that women in Port-au-Prince refugee camps are subjected to “alarming rates of rape.”

    The team, which spent over a week conducting on-site interviews, said on Monday that women who report rapes to the police are routinely “turned away, not taken seriously, or told to notify the police if they see the rapists again.”

    The Port-au-Prince based Bureau des Avocats Internationaux and Lawyers Earthquake Response Network called on the Haitian government to immediately improve services for rape survivors and boost police patrols inside the camps.
