Again… UN Troops Involved In Another Child Sex Scandal
The UN is sending home more than 100 of the 950 Sri Lankan peacekeepers in Haiti, accusing them of sexual abuse, including with underage girls.
The UN said the troops had paid for sex and that some of the girls were minors.
UN peacekeepers have been involved in a series of sex-abuse scandals, including this year in Ivory Coast, where 800 were suspended.
The organisation said it had a “zero tolerance” policy but it was up to the supplying nations to discipline troops.
A 2005 UN report suggested a central disciplining policy but member nations could not agree.
Sadly, this is not the first time.
