Land in Haiti - 2 chunks of downtown Port-au-Prince taken over by government for public use (eminent domain)

The Haitian government had decided it's time to enlarge the State University Hospital of Port-au-Prince (l'Hopital de l'Université d'Etat d'Haiti - HUEH) and construct a new building for the Haitian firefighters. To do that, 2 chunks of downtown Port-au-Prince have been taken over for public use (utilité publique).

Land For Sale in Haiti

Read this from Le Nouvelliste (translated from French):

The General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers decided to reserve a part of the city center exclusively for the construction of two public buildings. By order of the Council of Ministers of Friday June 30, 2017, two perimeters within the commune of Port-au-Prince were declared of public utility.

The first field which will be used for the expansion of the space of the Hospital of the State University of Haiti (HUEH) is delimited "in the North, by the Faculty of Law and Economics. In the South, by the Faculty of Medicine, Pharmacy and Medical Technology. To the east, via Rue Oswald Durand. To the West by the Hospital of the State University of Haiti."

The other land extends to the "North," by Rue Bonne Foi. To the south, via Rue Eden. To the east, by avenue Marie Jeanne. To the west, via Harry Truman Boulevard. It is thus reserved for the construction of a building for the benefit of firefighters of Port-au-Prince. "

If your property happens to fall withing these perimeters, what can I say, I hope you paid your property taxes (Impot Locatif).

If it's the government land, eminent domain doesn't apply.
