Haiti’s Prime Minister Joseph Jouthe met with Fritz Deshommes, the head of the University of Haiti (UEH), and Normal Superior School (ENS) officials on Tuesday at The Bicentenaire in Port-au-Prince.

Students from both institutions have been protesting against the country’s rampant insecurity and many of their marches have led to clashes between them and the police. Gregory Saint-Hilaire, an ENS student, was shot on campus Oct 2. Witnesses said a National Palace security guard was the shooter.

However, it appears neither the protests nor Saint-Hilaire’s killing were discussed.

On social media, Jouthe said they discussed student internships, building the next UEH campus, cafeterias in different faculties, and finding a temporary location for ‘ENS while its new campus is being built. Source
