UQAM professor Duhaime and his team win judgment in the "Guayubin Massacre" case at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights

MONTREAL, Dec. 3, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - On October 24, more than twelve years after the "Guayubin Massacre", the Inter-American Court of Human Rights condemned the Dominican State for having arbitrarily attacked, executed and injured thirty Haitian migrants in June 2000, in the widely followed case of Nadege Dorzema et al v. Dominican Republic. This judgment would not have been possible without the dedicated work of a professor in the Faculty of Political Science and Law at UQAM and founder of the UQAM International Clinic for the Defense of Human Rights (CIDDHU), Bernard Duhaime, the Groupe d'appui aux rapatriés et réfugiés (GARR) and the Centre culturel dominicain haïtien (CCDH).
