HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
One of the numerous human rights case, involving MINUSTAH personnel – initially denied, by the United Nations (finally admitted months later) saw us in action. We brought a top Atlanta-based lgal team, made up of Congressman Bob Barr, Ed Marger, and Mike Puglise, to represent a Haitian boy’s claim that he was assaulted by 5 Uruguayan sailors. They negotiated a settlement with the Uruguayan Commander in Chief, sent to Haiti for the meetings. In an unusual action, Uruguayan President Jose Mujica issued a personal public apology for his sailors’ actions.
