Joseph, who after his dismissal from the Foreign Ministry declared himself an opponent, recalled that the premier held talks with Lawyer Joseph Felix Badio on the day of the assassination, and then the lawyer visited him at the official residence, despite being subject to a search warrant.
“The government led by Prime Minister Ariel Henry will not be able to do justice to late President Jovenel Moïse,” the former head of Government said in a message on Twitter, and claimed that the neurosurgeon “systematically” obstructs the investigation.
The former prime minister suggested that the revocation of Justice Rockefeller Vincent and Government Commissioner Bel-Ford Claude was intended to prevent Henry from being charged with the crime.
Both Vincent and Claude were fired from their positions when the latter invited the head of Government to an audience to answer for the conversations held with Badio.
Joseph also noted that Henry categorically opposed his call for the United Nations to open an international investigation into the archive, calling the existence of a political will to bring those responsible for the assassination to justice illusory.
Moïse, 53, was shot at his residence apparently by a commando of former Colombian soldiers, 18 of whom are being held in the National Penitentiary, although none have been formally charged.
