U.N. Aide Criticizes Haiti
Published: April 7, 2006

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, April 6 (Reuters) The director of the United Nations' human rights office in Haiti accused judicial officials and the American-backed interim government on Thursday of illegally detaining most of the 4,000 people in jail.

The official, Thierry Fagart, said most of the inmates had not been formally charged or put on trial by the interim authorities who replaced President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, who was ousted two years ago.

Mr. Fagart said many detainees, particularly high-profile prisoners, should be released immediately while investigations and other judicial proceedings continue.

"There are people who have been in preventive detention more time than provided by the law if they were sentenced," he said.
