UN hit by two new child sex cases in Haiti
United Nations: The United Nations said
Tuesday that two cases of "sexual exploitation" of children by UN police were being investigated in Haiti.
UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said the United Nations was "outraged" by the cases which had been reported in Port-au-Prince and the provincial city of Gonaives.
The spokesman did not give the nationality of the UN
police involved in the allegations. The scandal has erupted
only a few months after Uruguayan troops were accused of
raping a Haitian youth.
He said the UN mission in Haiti, MINUSTAH, had informed
the UN leadership of two cases of "sexual exploitation and
abuse involving minors" on January 16.
One involved UN police based in the capital, Port-au-Prince, and the second was in Gonaives.
"The United Nations is outraged by these allegations and
takes its responsibilities to deal with them extremely
seriously," said Nesirky.
