Text of Jean Dominique radio ad - Campaign against impunity to mark 3 April anniversary


3 April 2000 - 3 April 2002
Jean Dominique, the head of Radio Haiti Inter, and Jean-Claude Louissaint, the station's gatekeeper, were murdered two years ago. Today their killers are celebrating two years of impunity. But what is Haiti's president, its senate, its justice minister, its police doing about it? Despite their promises, they're barring the way to justice. And last December, another journalist, Brignol Lindor, was killed. Can you talk of democracy when journalists live and work in fear? The wave of violence must stop and the tradition of impunity must end. Reporters Without Borders and the Damocles Network join with the Haitian media and everyone else demanding justice for Jean Dominique and Jean-Claude Louissaint. Creole version 3 avril 2000 – 3 avril 2002
Yo touye direktè Radyo Ayiti Entè a Jean DOMINIQUE ak gadyen radyo a Jean-Claude LOUISSAINT. Jodi a fè 2 zan depi asasen yo af flannen san kòd nan kou yo. Ki sa prezidans la fè ? Sena a, ministè jistis la, lapolis ; ki sa yo fè ? Malgre pwomès yo fè, se yo ki tounen baryè pou bloke tout mannèv lajistis. Sak pi rèd la, nan mwa desanm ki sot pase la a, asasen rache jounalis Brignol LINDOR. Eske nou ka di gen demokrasi lè jounalis ap fonksyone nan laperèz? Fòk esklann vyolans sa a fini. Fòk enpinite kaba. Nan tèt kole ak medya ayisyen yo, repòtè san fwontyè ak rezo Damoklès jwenn vwa yo ak tout moun kap mande jistis. Jistis pou Jean DOMINIQUE ak Jean-Claude LOUISSAINT.
