Suspected mastermind of the assassination of Haiti president arrested
Haiti’s national police on Sunday announced the arrest of one of the suspected mastermind of the assassination of President Jovenel Moise.
The suspected killers called him after the attack and evidence was found in his flat, Charles said.
The 63-year-old doctor recently arrived in Haiti on a private plane to seize the presidency, he said.
He allegedly hired Colombian mercenaries through a private Venezuelan security firm based in Florida.
The doctor is the third U.S. resident of Haitian origin and the 21st person overall to be detained as a suspect in the case.
The other two also reportedly lived in Florida.
Police have said 26 Colombian mercenaries were involved in the murder overall, three were killed, 18 suspects were in detention and police were seeking the remaining five.
High-ranking U.S. officials who are expected to help with the investigation met with Charles on Sunday.
