Haitian police have arrested 63-year-old Florida-based doctors who had flown over through a private jet to Haiti.
According to the police chief, the doctor who allegedly masterminded the killing had hired gunmen from Columbia through a private Venezuela security firm to invade the Haitian leader’s home.
Incriminating evidence pointing to the fact that he appointed mercenaries to kill the President was reportedly found in Dr Christian Emmanuel Sanon’s home. A neighbour of the doctor in Florida had attested to how passionate the doctor was about Haiti; found it confusing bow he could kill the president.
An engineering professor, Michel Plancher, however, stated that he had never heard of the doctor until the doctor had allegedly called a meeting where he said he would rule Haiti and its president would have to resign for this to happen.
The wife of the late Haitian President spoke for the first time saying that the invasion and killing had happened almost at once. She implored that the people of Haiti do not lose their sight of what Haiti should be even while their president is dead so that his death would not be in vain.
Interim Prime Minister, Claude Joseph, who has taken the rein of control is under pressure from the opposition to hand over office to Joseph Lambert who legislators have voted into the office of the resident making this a direct challenge to Claude Joseph’s interim office.
Legislators reportedly are in favour of Ariel Henry who late Jovenel Moise had appointed as his next Prime Minister after Claude Joseph but who had not been sworn into office before the president’s assassination.
Claude Joseph, however, does not believe he should be ousted out of the office until an election has been conducted in September.
