The Police Commissioner for the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) visited the Rwandan Front Protection Unit (FPU4) camp in Jeremie and urged them to maintain their professional conduct to accomplish the mission tasks.
Luis Miguel Carritho, who was accompanied by his deputy, said their mission in the disaster-prone Caribbean nation is to “ensure a stable country in terms of security and economy.”
He added that MINUSTAH has zero tolerance towards gender based violence and violence against women and girls, and thanked the Rwandan force for exercising discipline and commitment in their duties.
He lauded the work done by the Rwandan police contingents, especially in strengthening the capacity of the Haitian police force, civil unrest, professional convoy escorting.
The mission in Haiti serves as a protection force for the UN staffs, crowd control and help in aid distribution in internally displaced camps.
He reiterated that “Rwanda Police force makes a difference in mission areas” by having two psychologists as experts for stress management and it’s “very crucial for personnel management.”
The Rwandan contingent commander, CSP Peter Hodari, who received MINUSTAH police chiefs, said Rwanda is committed to bringing peace to the rest of the world by working professionally.
