Haitian national police director Leon Charles has given more details on how President Jovenel Moise was assassinated by gunmen.
Recall that Moise, 53, was killed after gunmen poured 12 bullets into his body at his residence in Port-au-Prince.
The wife of the Haiti President who also sustained injuries during the attack was flown to Florida where she is receiving treatment and is reported to be in a stable but critical condition.
Speaking to newsmen, Charles revealed that Moise’s chief bodyguard and three other members of his security detail have been arrested.
Charles said the president’s assassination by armed mercenaries was planned in the neighboring Dominican Republic.
He said the assassins entered the Haitian leader’s residence in Port-au-Prince and killed him, with no injuries to his bodyguards, raising suspicions that the attack may have been an inside job.
“They met in a hotel in Santo Domingo.Around the table, there are the architects of the plot, a technical recruitment team, and a finance group.
“Some individuals in the photo have already been apprehended, such as Dr. Christian Emmanuel Sanon and James Solages,” Charles said.
Charles said Solages coordinated with Miami-based Venezuelan security firm CTU as part of the plot.
“The head of the firm, Antonio Emmanuel Intriago Valera, is also in the picture because he entered Haiti several times to plan the assassination.
“Florida-based financial services company,Worldwide Capital Lending Group funded the attack and its boss Walter Veintemilla also appears with the plotters,” he added.
