The head of government assured that these actions are intended to sow anarchy in the country, in addition to endangering the lives of people and property.

Henry announced that he had instructed the public authorities to investigate and prosecute those responsible, in order to bring them to justice.

The day before, armed men entered the Sacre-Coeur hospital in the city of Milot, smashed the windows and destroyed everything in their path, as well as threatening the service personnel, confirmed director Harol Previl.

Both the laboratory and patient records were consumed by the fire, and the group attempted to set fire to the hospital’s electrical generator.

“They made the attack under the pretext of coming to look for a murderer who was hospitalized,” said the director, who described the attack as terrorist and revealed that the assailants included former employees of the institution, previously dismissed for embezzlement.

Previl announced the temporary closure of the clinic and the transfer of patients affected by Covid-19 to the Mirebalais hospital, located in the center of the country.

Haiti is plunged into a spiral of violence, with the multiplication of armed gangs on its national territory, the increase of kidnappings, murders and criminal acts.
