UN-Appointed Expert Blames Peacekeepers For Cholera Outbreak, Demands Compensation For Haitians – Atlanta Black Star


A United Nations-appointed expert has publicly disagreed with the world body and called for “full compensation” for the victims of a cholera epidemic in Haiti that has left thousands dead.

Gustavo Gallon also said in his report that “those responsible” for the outbreak should be punished.

Gallon is a U.N.-appointed expert on human rights in Haiti.

Evidence suggests U.N. peacekeepers introduced cholera to Haiti in 2010, but the world body has rejected compensation claims.

The outbreak – which has killed more than 8,300 people and infected hundreds of thousands – has been blamed on leaking sewage pipes at a U.N. base. via – Atlanta Black Star
