NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The Bahamas has committed to providing up to 150 military personnel as a part of a multi-national security effort to restore law and order in Haiti.

But earlier this month, a Kenyan court ruled against Nairobi’s plan to deploy police officers to support the troubled island nation’s security forces.

The ruling has thrown into doubt the future of a U.N.-backed multinational force being sent to Haiti.

Kenya’s government had previously said it was ready to provide up to 1,000 personnel, an offer welcomed by the United States and other nations that had ruled out putting their own forces on the ground.

In a statement, the Kenyan government said while they respect the ruling, they plan to challenge the decision.

National Security Minister, Wayne Munroe.

He says they anticipate that the mission will be led by Kenya.

The national security minister also revealed that Haiti needs maritime security and that may involve the HMBS Nassau moving closer Haiti.

He says if action isn’t taken to assist in deescalating the situation in Haiti conditions will likely continue to deteriorate.
