UN rejects claim that peacekeepers spread cholera epidemic in Haiti

• AFP

The United Nations on Thursday formally rejected massive damages claims filed by lawyers after UN peacekeepers were accused of introducing a cholera epidemic to Haiti.

About 8,000 people have died in the epidemic but UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said the global body had told lawyers the damages claim was “non-receivable” under a 1946 convention laying out the UN’s immunities for its actions.
