UN Peacekeepers in Haiti Fathered and Abandoned Hundreds of Children

first_imgPORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – According to a report in British publication, The Times, United Nations peacekeepers stationed in Haiti since the 2010 devastating earthquake, fathered hundreds of children then abandoned their young mothers to lives of poverty.According to report, a study into the UN’s longest peacekeeping mission said girls as young as age 11 would trade sex for food or ‘a few coins’ so they could survive amid political turmoil and the aftermath of the earthquake.After facing sexual abuse and impregnation, these girls and young women were ‘left in misery’ to raise their children by themselves, The Times reported.Due to the prevalence of the problem, locals have dubbed these children “Petit Minustah” after the acronym for the mission to Haiti between 2004 and 2017, United Nations Mission for Justice Support in Haiti.The research study’s team was led by Sabine Lee, from the University of Birmingham, and between June and August 2017 they conducted more than 2,500 interviews with people living close to UN bases in Haiti.According to the newspaper, the issue of UN babies was raised, unprompted, over 250 times.The research claims that soldiers from 12 countries have been identified as fathering and abandoning the children.While admitting it was impossible to give a definitive number of peacekeeper-fathered children, Professor Lee said “most researchers and NGO officials would agree that hundreds is a credible estimate, adding that “it’s a pervasive issue, not isolated cases.”“The multitude of stories and the fact that sexual exploitation, abuse and the existence and abandonment of peacekeeper-fathered children appeared over and over again in the stories indicates that this is a very significant problem.”Controversy is nothing new to UN’s Haiti mission, since troops from Nepal were blamed for accidentally sparking the cholera outbreak which killed 10,000 people following the 2010 earthquake and 114 Sri Lankan soldiers were sent home admid child sex allegations.last_img read more

Mason City Downtown Arena ribbon cutting today, “First Skate” took place on Thursday (VIDEO)

first_imgMASON CITY — While the ribbon cutting ceremony takes place later this morning for the new multi-purpose arena in downtown Mason City, a milestone took place yesterday with the first skate on the ice for the arena.  For years at the North Iowa Ice Arena, Mohawk Hockey Coach and arena manager John Lloyd would always have the honor of being the first person out on the ice. Coach Lloyd had the first skate honors yesterday at the new arena and invited Ron Hanna, one of the founders of the Mason City Youth Hockey program, to join him.  Lloyd says, “It’s exciting because that way now I know now we’re getting ready to go. When I took that first skate, I asked Ron to go with me this year. That was special alone.” Hanna says he was honored to be asked by Lloyd to do that.” Lloyd and Hanna say they look forward to the youth hockey program being able to use the new arena.  Lloyd says they are happy to be a part of this arena and look forward to the future of youth hockey. Hanna says, “We are leaving a lot of old memories out there, and hopefully we have some new memories here.”Lloyd says one of the big differences between the old and new arenas is the amount of locker room space available.   “Locker room space is nice. The high school team has got a larger locker room, but I think we can even get the visiting team into one locker room instead of giving them two. When we have youth tournaments, we’ve got eight locker rooms that we can use for youth hockey tournaments.” The grand opening ceremony takes place at 10 o’clock this morning at the arena, which is on the west side of Southbridge Mall.last_img read more

Trent Merrin denies Panthers player unrest claims

Those players that have left was best for their career.”Both the decisions were made from the player [perspective] and best perspective from the club as well.”The 28-year-old threw his support behind head coach Anthony Griffin and the coaching staff leading into the new season, re-iterating there was no reason to suggest the side wasn’t capable of improving on their semi-final finish in 2017.”There’s no issues within the group, the fans should be happy with that,” Merrin said.”It’s one of the tightest groups I’ve been a part of. Every club has their own individual issues and get on top of them their own ways and that’s what has happened at our club.”You ask any one of these players here and they’ve got full belief and respect of the staff and officials we have at this club to make the right decisions moving forward.”When those decisions were made obviously you have a friendship base at the club and they’ll never be lost, but at the end of the day the club and player has to do what’s best for themselves.”Merrin was confident any remaining off-field distractions will vanish if the Panthers can fix an irritating habit of making sluggish starts their Telstra Premiership campaigns, having done so for the past three seasons.The side have won only two games in their opening five clashes in each season dating back to 2015 – including last year’s tough two-wins, seven-loss record from their first nine fixtures.”It’s something we need to work on and talk about, to start fast coming into these trials and round one,” Merrin said.”We’ve put a lot of emphasis on starting our games fast and building the consistency on the back of that.”The boys are anxious to get out on the field and pass the ball around, get some contact and play some footy. That’s the main thing about trials – to get the timing right off the ball and defensive structures right and get used to the players left and right of you.”We’re all looking forward to it.”Griffin has not mucked around for the pre-season hit-out on Saturday, naming new recruit James Maloney alongside Nathan Cleary in the halves with Merrin, James Tamou and James Fisher-Harris to lead the forward pack.All NRL squads for trials and World Club Challengelast_img read more
