Haiti: Intimidation/Fear for Safety

, Index number: AMR 36/010/2002

On 16 July, human rights defender Sylvie Bajeux was attacked in her home in the Péguyville area of the capital, Port-au-Prince. Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of Sylvie Bajeux and her husband Jean-Claude, and fears that this attack may be aimed at trying to prevent them and other human rights defenders and journalists from carrying out their work. This attack comes after the kidnapping on 15 July of Israel Jacky Cantave, an investigative reporter for the Port-au-Prince-based station Radio Caraibes.
