Haiti: Human rights defender fears for safety

, Index number: AMR 36/0343/2019

On April 26, two unknown men on motorbikes, presumably belonging to a local gang, circled the office of Pierre Espérance, a prominent Haitian human rights defender, in Port-au-Prince. He reported that different sources advised him about recent death threats made against him and stated that the police were aware of them. We demand that the Haitian authorities provide him with effective protection according to his wishes and that authorities immediately and independently investigate these threats.
