The UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) has been instrumental to returning law and order to the Cite Soleil neighborhood of the capital city Port-au-Prince, which was formerly controlled by armed gangs, the UN's top peacekeeping official was told during a visit Jan. 29. "MINUSTAH's presence has permitted us to re-establish security," Haitian Police Inspector Rosemond Aristide told Under-Secretary-General Alain Le Roy, adding: "Now the population of Cite Soleil can pursue their normal occupations."
