The United Nations, which last month launched a fresh mission to promote long-term development in Haiti, has had it with nice words: when it comes to corruption and human rights, “the proof is in the pudding.”

“They have said they want to fight corruption, so they have to take responsibility,” insisted Susan Page, who is heading the UN Mission for Justice Support in Haiti.

“I’m going to take them at their word, but I’m also going to help them if that is really what they want,” the American career diplomat said.

President Jovenel Moise, who took office earlier this year, told the UN general assembly in New York in September that he is going to use his time in office to clean up Haitian politics.

Tomorrow, the Senate will debate a parliamentary report accusing a dozen former ministers, who held office between 2010 and 2016, of “fraud on a grand scale.”
