Seeking Justice: Cholera in Haiti
- Created on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 7:07 PM
For lawyers Brian Concannon and Mario Joseph, cholera in Haiti isn't just a deadly diseaseâ€”it is a question of justice. Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world, lacks a water and sanitation infrastructure that would have prevented the spread of cholera, a disease that hadn't been seen in the country for decades until it was allegedly re-introduced by United Nations peacekeeping troops.
A case filed against the United Nations to pursue reparations for the victims of the disease has gone nowhere fast, but Concannon and Joseph say they will not let the case disappear.
