DESCRIPTION

Rodolfo Mattarollo discusses the results of an OAS/UN report on the state of human rights, justice, and impunity in Haiti in the aftermath of the coup d’état and the brutal regime of Raoul Cédras (1991-1994), during which an untold number of people were killed, disappeared, raped, and tortured. Mattarollo focuses on the need to establish and document the truth – which is particularly complicated in Haiti, because so many of the victims were poor, anonymous peasants – and on having solid judicial structures and legal institutions in the fight against impunity. He speaks particularly of the Raboteau massacre of 1994, in which military forces gunned down pro-Aristide demonstrators in the Raboteau neighborhood of Gonaïves. Mattarollo, who was exiled from his homeland of Argentina during that country’s military regime, was lawyer, human rights defender, and Adjunct Executive Director of the International Civilian Mission in Haiti (MICIVIH) from 1996 to 2000. As the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) ambassador to Haiti from 2010, Dr. Matarollo provided active support to the plaintiffs in the judicial case against former dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier.  Interview Jean Dominique.
