Assassins of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse Arrested


What Happened:

  • Wednesday evening, Communications Secretary Frantz Exantus announced that the authorities had captured the "presumed assassins" of former Haitian President Jovenel Moïse and that the suspects were detained in Pelerin.

  • Early Wednesday, Haiti’s interim Prime Minister announced that Haitian President Jovenel Moïse had been assassinated by a squad of gunmen during an overnight attack at his home. First Lady Martine Moïse was also hurt during the attack and is currently hospitalized.

  • With a suffering economy, runaway inflation and escalating gang violence, many Haitians have been displeased with Moïse’s leadership.

  • Moïse had been ruling as a provisional president for over two years after the country failed to hold presidential elections.

  • Opposition leaders have been calling for Moïse to step down saying his term ended earlier this year. Elections are scheduled to be held later this year.
