United Nations peacekeepers in Haiti sexually abused nine children over a period of three years, an Associated Press investigation has found. It’s the latest in a long series of sex abuse scandals to plague U.N. peacekeeping missions worldwide.

From 2004 to 2007, 134 peacekeepers from Sri Lanka operated a child sex ring, luring children on the poverty-stricken island with candy and bits of cash, according to the AP. After a U.N. report incriminated them, most were sent home, but none faced jail time.

One victim told U.N. investigators, “I did not even have breasts,” according to the AP. Over a period of three years, beginning when she was 12 years old, she was forced to have sex with over 50 peacekeepers, the AP said.

The blue helmets first came to Haiti in 2004, after a rebellion saw Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide ousted.

There’s little doubt sexual abuse has become a systemic problem among peacekeepers. To date, there have been over 2,000 allegations of sexual abuse, 300 of those involving children, according to the AP report. But due to legal restrictions, the U.N. is not permitted to punish perpetrators, a responsibility which is left to host countries in places where those governments are often neither capable nor willing to bother.

The U.N first commissioned a report on sexual abuse among its peacekeeping forces more than 10 years ago, but little was done to effectively stop it. In 2016, the U.N. mission in the Central African Republic became embroiled in reports that more than 100 people had faced sexual abuse at the hands of peacekeepers.

Some have accused the U.N. of taking no action in the face of sex abuse reports, what former U.N. investigator Peter Gallo referred to as an “‘out of sight, out of mind’ strategy.” In June 2016, Anders Kompass, a child sex abuse whistleblower at the U.N., resigned in frustration at the U.N.’s failure to adequately respond to allegations.

considering the UN's record on who is picked for Human Rights committees I'm not surprised.

Meanwhile, it is impossible that pizzagate can be real.

not Haiti, the fucking Somalia of the US east coast.

you can see why host countries don't bother to prosecute, by the time it goes to a trial, or even an investigation, people (witnesses) are scattered all over the world

Nah. It isn't like somebody got someone out of jail in Haiti.

Hmm, so how does the UN charge themselves for crimes against humanity?

That is complete and utter bullshit, right there.  They could've done something, but chose not to because they are corrupt to the core.

I would hate to be working with the UN and seeing this stuff, but having to let it go because my bosses won't do anything.

The African UN peace keeping missions all ended the exact same. children and parents feared the peacekeepers more than anything else... or parents sold their children to the peacekeepers. Far as I now nothing was really done about it, and nothing will be done about it, the UN doesn't actually care about the well being of people.

I remember hearing the same shit in the late 80's early 90's,what has changed in the last 20-30 years?Doubt anything will change going forward either.

Guess they need peacekeepers to keep an eye on the peacekeepers.

UN Peacekeeping is just virtue-signalling by the globalist elite.
