UN votes to shut down MINUJUSTH
The UN Security Council on Friday decided to shut down a police mission in Haiti and replace it with a smaller UN political presence.
The resolution was adopted by a vote of 13 in favor in the 15-member council. Russia and the Dominican Republic abstained.
UN Secretary-General was tasked with drawing up plans for the new political mission to take over in October to coordinate the work of UN agencies and cooperate with donors to help Haiti's government.
MINUJUSTH will be gradually drawn down over the coming months and end on October 15, according to a US-drafted resolution.
