Gangs demolished the Titanyen civil prison and the Croix-des-Bouquets police station on the night of May 17 to 18.

On the night of May 17 to 18, 2024, armed gangs began to demolish the Titanyen civil prison as well as the Titanyen police station. police of the commune of Croix-des-Bouquets. The videos circulating on social networks bear witness to the violence and relentlessness with which these individuals took the pleasure of reducing these infrastructures to ruins using an excavator.

This is not the first time that the country’s civilian prisons and police stations have been attacked by gangs. On March 2, the Croix-des-Bouquets civil prison and the national penitentiary were attacked, leading to the release of all the inmates by the armed attackers. Since this incident, the police authorities have lost all control over these penitentiary establishments, unable to restore order in the face of the power and organization of these gangs in the town.

La Croix-des-Bouquets, once a dynamic commune, is now under the yoke of armed gangs, in particular the 400 Mawozo group led by Lanmò San Jou. This criminal organization has controlled the region for several years, transforming the town into a lawless territory where fear and anarchy reign. The permanent presence of violence has forced many residents to flee, seeking refuge far from clashes and abuses.

The recent attack and destruction of judicial and police structures illustrate the impunity with which these groups operate, highlighting the inability of law enforcement to contain their influence. The loss of state control over certain areas of the country highlights a growing security crisis that is increasingly beyond the reach of Haitian authorities.
