‘#Colombia no longer only exports oil, coffee, flowers and avocados. Now we export thugs and hired killers, duly trained by private security companies, like the contingent sent to Haiti to assassinate the president. What a shame!,’ he tweeted.
Colombian President Ivan Duque told a local radio station on Thursday that many of the retired military officers accused of being involved in the assassination went to Haiti as bodyguards, but others had detailed information of the planned assassination.
For his part, National Police Director Jorge Luis Vargas said that retired Captain German Rivera received 50,000 dollars from the United States to plan the assassination.
Vargas explained at a press conference that Rivera, another Colombian former military officer, Duberney Capador, who was killed on Haitian soil, and another person, still unidentified, traveled to Haiti on May 10 via a border crossing from the Dominican Republic.
Once in the country of destination, they met with Haitian Doctor Christian Emmanuel Sanon, who was arrested and is considered the mastermind of Moïse’s assassination, he added
Moïse’s assassination by an armed commando, mostly composed of retired Colombian military officers, took place at his residence on July 7 and was planned from the neighboring Dominican Republic, the head of the Haitian National Police, Leon Charles, said.
