The authorities do not rule out that those suspects could cross the border with the neighboring Dominican Republic, although on Sunday, the president of that country, Luis Abinader, denied having information about alleged mercenaries in his territory.

To date, the Police have arrested 21 suspects, among them a Haitian doctor, named Emmanuel Sanon, who could be one of the assassination masterminds, Police Chief Leon Charles denounced.

In addition to those arrested, the Prosecutor’s Office in Port-au-Prince is making progress in a parallel investigation and expects this week to interview those responsible for the presidential guard, as well as businessmen and politicians.

Since the weekend, the Haitian Police have received help from their counterpart in Colombia, after the arrival of a special unit of the Criminal Investigation Directorate, as well as agents from the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Moïse, 53, was the fifth Haitian president to be assassinated while still in power, and was found in his room with at least 12 bullet wounds from the hip to the head. His wife, Martine Moïse, was shot in the attack and is recovering at a United States hospital.
