Further information on UA 336/91 (AMR 36/11/91, 11 October 1991) - Fear of
"Disappearance"/Extrajudicial Execution
HAITI:Camille CÉSAR, aged 52
Camille BAZILE
Following the arrest by members of the armed forces of Camille César and Camille
Bazile, in Port-au-Prince in the early days of the coup d'Etat between 30
September and 2 October, Amnesty International has learned that their bodies
were discovered at the morgue in Port-au-Prince. The bodies were
bullet-riddled.
Amnesty International is concerned that both men, who were members of
Front National pour le Changement et la Démocratie (FNCD), National Front for
Change and Democracy, the political party which backed the candidacy of
President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, may have been extrajudicially executed.
FURTHER RECOMMENDED ACTION: Telegrams/telexes/faxes/telephone calls/airmail
letters:
- expressing concern at the apparent extrajudicial executions of Camille
César and Camille Bazile;
- asking that a full and impartial investigation be carried out into their
killings and that the results be made public;
- urging that those found to be responsible be brought to justice.
