WIFE OF HAITI’S ASSASSINATED PRESIDENT, INDICTED IN HIS MURDER

A judge in Haiti investigating the July 2021 assassination of President Jovenel Moïse indicted his widow, Martine Moïse, ex-prime minister Claude Joseph and the former chief of Haiti’s National Police, Léon Charles, among others in his ki!ling.

Dozens of suspects were indicted in the 122-page report issued by Walther Wesser Voltaire, who is the fifth judge to lead the investigation after previous ones stepped down for various reasons, including fear of being ki!led.

Charles, who was police chief when Moïse was ki!led and now serves as Haiti’s permanent representative to the Organization of the American States, faces the most serious charges: murder; attempted m¥rder; possession and illegal carrying of weapons; conspiracy against the internal security of the state; and criminal association.

Meanwhile, Joseph and Martine Moïse, who were injured in the attack, are accused of complicity and criminal association.

Joseph, the former prime minister, shared a statement with The Associated Press accusing Henry of “undermining” the investigation and benefitting from the president’s death.

“Henry … is weaponizing the Haitian justice system, prosecuting political opponents like me. It’s a classic coup d’état,” Joseph said. “They failed to ki!l me and Martine Moïse on July 7th 2021, now they are using the Haitian justice system to advance their Machiavellian agenda.”

Joseph again called on Henry to resign and noted that while he was still prime minister, he invited the FBI to help local authorities investigate the ki!ling and wrote the U.N. and OAS for help.

“I won’t stop my fight. Justice must be served,” he said.
