Father Jean Juste's name was among a list of individuals (shown above) and
organizations broadcast on 15 December 1991 by a clandestine Haitian radio
station. In the broadcast, the speaker called on Tonton Macoutes for the
assassination of all the people mentioned in the list. [Please note that the
broadcast was made in the evening of Sunday 15 December not Sunday 22 December
as was previously stated in the original urgent action.]
Several days later, on 18 December, the residence of Father Jean-Juste was
reportedly forced into by the Haitian military. Father Jean-Juste was
apparently not at home at the moment of the attack, but other residents of
the home were reportedly beaten and household furniture and personal belongings
were damaged.
Amnesty International remains seriously concerned for the safety of Father
Jean-Juste, and of the others named in the list. [Please note that André Jude's
name accidentally appeared twice in the list produced on the original urgent
action.]
