Precautionary Measures Granted

November 16, 2010

The Inter-American Commission granted precautionary measures against Haiti in response to a request submitted by You.Me.We., the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti, the Bureau Des Avocats Internationaux, the Center for Constitutional Rights, and the International Human Rights Law Clinic at American University School of Law. The Commission directed the Government of Haiti to implement a moratorium on forced evictions in the camps, and take other measures to protect internally displaced people from grave and irreparable harm.
