Haiti: Further information on: Fear for safety/death threats

, Index number: AMR 36/057/2004

Lawyers Rénan Hédouville and Mario Joseph, who have worked on behalf of people who suffered human rights abuses at the hands of the army while Haiti was under military rule, have been receiving numerous anonymous telephone death threats. Amnesty International believes both men's lives are in danger. M. Hédouville has reported the threats repeatedly to the media and the authorities, but nothing has been done to protect him.
