iciHaiti - FLASH : Seizure of weapons, the government does not say everything ?
In a note, the General Administration of Customs (AGD), informs the population that "[...] during the control operations carried out by the customs officers in the ports of Port-au-Prince and certain provincial towns, significant seizures of weapons and ammunition illegally entered have been made."

It is worth to recall that over the last 3 months, only 3 seizures of weapons have been officially brought to the public's attention by the authorities :

On September 8, at the Port of Saint-Marc, seized more than 150 weapons and a large amount of ammunition... https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18569-haiti-flash-worrying-seizure-of-weapons-from-the-usa.html

Monday, October 24 at the Port of Saint-Marc 4 weapons and ammunition https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18738-haiti-flash-2nd-seizure-of-weapons-to-st-marc-customs.html

Tuesday, November 8 at Port Lafito Global seizure of a dozen pistols and ammunition https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19168-haiti-flash-new-discovery-of-firearms-in-a-container.html

The AGD note suggests, without further clarification, that there have been several large seizures of weapons and ammunition should us deduce that many important seizure of weapons have not been brought to the attention of the public by the authorities concerned ?

The AGD concludes by recalling "Face this alarming situation, the AGD considers it appropriate to recall [...] that any import of weapons and ammunition, unauthorized and unreported, is considered as contraband activity a prosecution will be engaged against the offenders."
