Jungle Justice: Man Set Ablaze In Haiti Vigilante Violence


In a bid to curb illicit criminal activities in some part of Haiti, the angered Haitians have burned a man to death, whom they suspected to be connected to the series of criminal activities in the city. This occured earlier on thursday in Port-au-Prince when some vigilante were carrying out patrol on the environment.

The city have been facing a lot of crimes ranging from rapes and robberies and decided to vent their anger when they saw the suspected man roaming the streets without a reasonable destination.

Hundreds of men marched through Petionville to the menacing rattle of machetes being dragged along the street and chanting slogans in a protest against criminal violence.

According to an eye witness, Fritzner Jules a moto taxi driver who was standing next to the charred corpse, the unidentified man was burned to death after being questioned on his business in the neighborhood.

Fritzner said: “It was a little past 1:00 am. The neighbors asked this guy if he knew anyone in the area. He didn’t know anyone and he had a red handkerchief around his ankle: it’s a sign of association with wrongdoers”.

“The population jumped on this guy, put tires over him, doused him with gasoline and set him on fire,” he said.

The incident followed a series of home invasions in Port-au-Prince in recent weeks in which the victims were sexually assaulted.

The National Police of Haiti deplored the vigilante violence.

In a statement throught the Police spokesman Frantz Lerebours, he said, “We cannot tolerate these acts: the public has no right to take justice into their own hands”.

He further added, “People must return to their homes or else the police will force them to”.
