Haitian court officers send assassination file to Prosecutor’s office

Port-au-Prince, Aug 10 (Prensa Latina) The Central Directorate of the Judicial Police (DCPJ) transferred the assassination file of President Jovenel Moïse to the Prosecutor's Office, one month after the crime, local press revealed today.

In the 120-page document, the DCPJ established the links between the 44 suspects and their level of involvement, according to the digital platform Haiti24.

The firearms, bulletproof vests and fragmentation grenades confiscated by the police authorities, as well as the significant sum of money recovered from the three members of the commando killed by the police, were also transferred to the registry of the prosecutor’s office of the First Instance Court.

Last week the police authorities handed the file to the dean of the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince, Bernard Saint-Vil, who appointed Judge Mathieu Chanlatte to investigate the case.

Several magistrates declined to investigate the assassination citing fears for their safety, after judges for peace Carl Henri Destin and Clement Noël, as well as two court clerks who made the first reports, denounced receiving intimidating phone calls, death threats, and had to seek refuge.

Moïse was shot dead at his residence at Pelerin 5 in the early hours of July 7, apparently without the intervention of the presidential guard.
