Haitian Prime Minister, Accused of Aiding President’s Murder, Sacks Justice Minister

HeadlineSep 17, 2021

Political turmoil in Haiti is growing after Prime Minister Ariel Henry replaced the country’s justice minister Thursday, just days after firing a top public prosecutor who sought to charge Henry in connection with the July assassination of President Jovenel Moïse. The prosecutor, who also sought to prevent Henry from leaving Haiti, said the prime minister had communicated with a key suspect on the night Moïse was killed. On Wednesday, the head of Haiti’s Council of Ministers resigned in response to the prosecutor’s firing.
