Investigations into the assassination of Haitian President Jovnell Moss last July entered a new scenario this week and transferred the case to the prosecutor’s office for criminal investigation and appointed an authorized judge to lead the process.
The announcement comes a week after Port-au-Prince’s attorney, Bed-Ford Claude, was transferred to the trial office.
The dean of Port-au-Prince’s civil court, Bernard Saint-Vil, announced Monday that the appointed judge, Matthew Sanlet, will instruct the trial.
Magistrate Sanlet, who is now in charge of the case, is recognized as an experienced judge who has served on a number of key activities involving Jovnell Moss’ widow Martin.
So far it is known that Moss’ assassination was carried out on the orders of 26 mercenaries who entered the presidential palace in the early hours of July 7 without facing opposition from security forces.
According to the latest data released by the police, 44 people have been arrested, including 12 policemen, 18 Colombians, mostly retired military personnel and six Haitians, three of whom were nationalized from the United States.
Among those arrested was Christian Emmanuel Sanon, known as the mastermind of the operation, however, Prime Minister Ariel Henry and the president’s widow, Martin Moss, have told international media that the perpetrators of the killings have not yet been arrested. .
