Hundreds of Haitian families are facing forcible eviction from a refugee camp where they have been living since the January 2010 earthquake. Representatives of the landowner, and local police officers, have been threatening and harassing them.

Amnesty International delegates visited the Grace Village refugee camp, in the Carrefour commune, in May, and received assurances from the representative of the man claiming to be the landowner of the camp that residents would not be forcibly evicted.
