The four classes of people who were identified as being at *higher risk*, 
that is to say having higher rates of HIV+ status than the average, were:

Heroin users

These were RISK GROUPS, groups of people who statistically showed a higher 
than average rate of HIV+ status at the time.

Which Haitian?  The one with AIDS or the one who doesn't have AIDS?  The 
Haitian tourist industry has suffered much more from the actions of the right 
wing, fomenting coups d'etat and strewing the streets of Port-au-Prince with 
cadavers.  Southeast Asia is rife with AIDS too (is there anywhere which 
isn't, nowadays?) and sex tours are booming there, mostly because there isn't 
any need for white men who want to abuse teenage Asian girls to fear 
political violence.

Should a class action suit be filed against those who created it?

<<Still now no one had apologized,
 I still believe a suit shall be filed against these
 individuals, those countries who had claimed that the
 Virus AIDS had originated from Haiti.>>

I don't believe that anyone hypothesized that the HIV virus originated in 
Haiti!  Two theories are current, one that it originated in Africa and one 
that it originated in the biological warfare laboratories of the United
