"inhuman", "degrading", "cruel". These are some of the adjectives used in the published report at the end of June of the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (Binuh) on the state of Haitian prisons. Institutions in which 80% of detainees are waiting for judgment. Data may be a little too abstract for all those who have never pushed the door of one of these prisons.

According to the UN, Haiti is one of the 10 countries most affected by prolonged preventive detention, a consequence of an almost non-existent judicial system. The consequence: overcrowded prisons in which the cells are crowded, without bed, without water, without toilet with one meal a day, often, a yoghurt in all and for everything in which we find dead insects. At the Gonaïve Prison, the smell is pestilential and diseases of all kinds propagate.
