4 Suspects in Assassination of Haiti’s President Moïse Transferred to U.S. to Face Criminal Charges

HeadlineFeb 01, 2023

Four key suspects in the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse have been extradited to the United States to face prosecution. The Justice Department said Tuesday three Haitian Americans and a Colombian national face charges that include conspiracy to commit murder and providing material support and resources resulting in death. This comes 18 months after Moïse was fatally shot at his home near the capital Port-au-Prince on July 7, 2021. Dozens of suspects have been arrested, but the case has been at a standstill as Haiti faces a political and humanitarian crisis. Haitian authorities say other suspects still remain at large.
