BOGOTA: Colombian police have claimed the involvement of a former government official in Haiti’s presidency, with the Colombian police chief saying a former Haitian justice ministry official had ordered the assassination.
According to foreign media reports, the Caribbean country has made great strides in the assassination of the President of Haiti.
During the investigation, the Colombian police chief claimed that orders to assassinate the Haitian president had been given to the ex-servicemen three days earlier by a former Justice Ministry official.
The police chief did not provide any proof of his claim, but one of the two accomplices named by the former officer, Joseph, has been killed in a police encounter, while the other is in custody and the search for Joseph continues.
According to media reports, no stand has been taken so far on the person on whom the police have expressed suspicion of giving murder orders.
It should be noted that the President of Haiti was shot dead by an armed group at his residence on July 7, while the first lady was also injured in this assassination attempt.
Twenty suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder.
