Haitian police said July 11 they had arrested one of the suspected masterminds in the assassination of President Jovenel Moise, a Haitian American man whom authorities accused of hiring mercenaries to oust and replace Moise.
Moise was shot dead on July 7 at his Port-au-Prince home by what Haitian authorities describe as a unit of assassins formed of 26 Colombians and two Haitian Americans, plunging the troubled Caribbean nation deeper into turmoil.
National Police Chief Leon Charles told a news conference the arrested man, Christian Emmanuel Sanon, 63, was in contact with a firm that provides security for politicians and recruited the suspects in the killing. He said Sanon flew into Haiti from Florida on a private jet accompanied by several of the alleged gunmen.
The gunmen’s initial mission was to protect Sanon, but they later received a new order: Arrest the president, Charles said.
Haitian police have arrested 18 Colombians and three Haitian Americans, including Sanon, over the murder, Charles said. (Reuters)
