The President of Haiti received mortal wound as a result of an attack on his residence on 7 July. The country has declared mourning and martial law, and arrests are underway. What is known about the suspects in the attack?
US citizen Christian Emmanuel Sanon is one of the main murder suspects President of Haiti – was arrested during a police raid in a respectable metropolitan area. Police reported the discovery of an arsenal of weapons, as well as baseball caps with US Drug Enforcement Administration markings.
The first press reaction to Sanon’s arrest was, “No one has ever heard of him.” Later, the details of the biography appeared: a native of Haiti, studied in the Dominican Republic and the United States, a doctor of medicine and theology. Could he have organized an assassination attempt on the president?
Haitian police are sure he could. Sanon allegedly recruited dozens of people because he wanted to “take the post of president of the republic.” According to this version, Sanon hinted at his own ambitions in a video published 10 years ago. There, he says that the country needs “new leadership” and, trying on the role of leader, promises to end the plundering of Haiti’s natural resources. True, the president then was not Jovenel Moise, but his predecessor.
“If I come to power, you will have to report what you are doing with my uranium, what are you planning to do with oil, where do you export gold and marble? These are the country’s resources. 9 million citizens should not live in poverty when there are so many natural resources in the country.” – assured Christian Emmanuel Sanon.
The American press found people who knew Sanon personally. According to one of them, the doctor seemed a little crazy. “He said that he was sent on God’s mission to replace Moise. And that the president will soon leave office – but he did not say why.”
Another acquaintance says that certain people contacted Sanon, claiming that they represent the US Department of State and the US Department of Justice. The plan was supposedly to arrest Moise, not kill him, and make Sanon president. “I assure you, it was supposed to be a mission to save Haiti from hell. Supported by the American government.”
Haitian police believe that four dozen people were involved in the murder. Some of them have already been detained – among them there are US citizens… The suspect in the case is a former senator. At least one of those arrested previously worked as an informant for the US Drug Enforcement Administration – they have already confirmed this there.
Reports from Venezuela give this case a new dimension. According to the speaker of the National Assembly, a security company allegedly linked to the assassination of the Haitian president may have also been involved in the 2018 assassination attempt on Nicolas Maduro.
