  1. Max Johnson says:

    Mr. Almagro should know by now that the most corrupt person in the Haiti is the president of the country. Therefore his meeting is totally worthless if the root causes of the problem are not addressed. Fight to eliminate impunity in the country and you would have done a huge favour to the haitian people.
