P-au-P, August 26, 2016 [AlterPresse] --- The political party Rasin kan pèp the calls of the United Nations (UN) to compensate the families of victims of the cholera epidemic, which has already nearly 10 thousand people since its introduction in October 2010, in Haiti, in a press conference this Friday, August 26, 2016, attended by the online agency AlterPresse.
In case of death, innocent civilians who are victims of UN soldiers to be compensated up to 100 thousand US dollars (per victim), said the party Rasin kan the pèp , citing the Charter of the United Nations.
The UN should in Haiti 40 billion US dollars. An amount, representing 5 times the overall budget (8 billion US dollars) keeping forces of peace in the world, show some calculations.
"It is an obligation (to Haiti) to continue to require 40 billion US dollars and to negotiate with the United Nations, the restitution of that amount," consider Camille Chalmers, spokeswoman Rasin kan the pèp.
The Republic of Haiti, which has suffered huge losses, especially at the economic level, because of the cholera epidemic, should be compensated by the UN.
"For several months, rice production in Artibonite dropped significantly, because farmers were afraid to put their feet in the paddy water, for fear of catching cholera. Therefore, it is extremely important economic damage."
Adequate investments should be made to eradicate cholera in Haiti, "which remains the country with the most people infected with cholera around the world."
"This cholera epidemic eradication plan is to extend over the next 4 years (until 2020). Appropriate investments should strive for universal access to safe drinking water in the country," insists the party Rasin kan the pèp.
The budget required for universal access to clean water in Haiti, would be less than the amount spent annually for the troops of the UN forces deployed in Haiti.
