The United Nations mission in Haiti today condemned the assassination of radio journalist Alix Joseph, vowing to help the authorities find the perpetrators.

Mr. Joseph, the director of Radio Provinciale, was assassinated on 16 May in Gonaïves by armed men, the UN Stabilization Mission in Haïti (MINUSTAH) said in a news release deploring the crime.

“This cruel and irresponsible act adds to the long list of crimes already committed against professionals of the Haitian press,” MINUSTAH said, pledging to help the Haitian authorities in the investigation and prosecution of the assassins.

The mission also voiced its solidarity with members of the Haitian media who continue to seek the end of the impunity for the killers of their murdered colleagues.
