Police in Haiti stated that they have arrested a doctor whom they believe is a prime suspect in organising last week’s assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.
It was reported that Christian Emmanuel Sanon, a 63-year-old Haitian national, flew into the country in a private jet in early June with “political motives”.
Mr Moïse, 53, was killed at his residence on 7 July, by 28 foreign mercenaries, the police reported .
His wife was injured in the attack and was flown to the US for treatment.
Martine Moïse described her husband’s attack as one that happened so quickly in their home .
She said the attack happened so quickly, her husband Jovenel was unable to “say a single word”.
The arrest of Mr Sanon was announced at a police briefing late on Sunday in the capital Port-au-Prince.
“This is an individual who entered Haiti on a private plane with political objectives,” said Haiti’s police chief Leon Charles.
