Haitians still don't know who killed Moise a month after the crime​

PUERTO PRINCIPE.- One month after the assassination of Jovenel Moise, Haitians still do not know who killed their president, while the investigation of the assassination is at a standstill, according to various sectors of national life and several involved in the process, which is subject to countless criticisms.

Among the reproaches to the authorities responsible for the case is the slowness of the procedures, the persistence of many gray areas in the investigation, the refusal of the authorities to disclose information and the lack of respect for the principles established by law.

ALLEGED IRREGULARITIES

"The judicial process is made up of violations of people's rights," when arrests were made "without there having been any flagrant crime," said attorney Stanley Gaston, legal defender, among other defendants, of Christian Emmanuel Sanon, alleged mastermind of the plan to kill Moise.

In addition, several of the accused "were deprived of the assistance of their lawyer" in the interrogations, and that constitutes "an arbitrary act," said the lawyer, who acknowledged that there have always been cases of human rights violations, but believes that the situation is worse in this case.

In his view, the police are violating the principle of presumption of innocence since they show a defendant on television. "This creates a bad impression," he said.

Lawyer Samuel Madistin also criticized that the detainees had not yet appeared before a judge after all this time and opined that the actions carried out during the investigation could be invalidated in the future.

“The police hold (press) conferences every day. They give verified and unverified information ”, even“ things that can discredit the investigation. All this will prevent the truth from coming out, "said Madistin, who represents the defendant Reynaldo Corvington.

In his view, "too many strange things have already been done" in this process, and "the real investigations will begin" to be carried out by the investigative cabinet to which the Port-au-Prince prosecutor Bed-Ford Claude sent the file last Wednesday, after being the subject of numerous death threats, according to local press.

BUT WHO KILLED MOISE?

Despite the arrests, the searches, the interrogations, the seizure of arms and ammunition, and all the actions carried out to date by the judicial and police authorities, the population has great doubts about the investigation, with Haiti being a country strongly marked by impunity and with a dysfunctional judicial system.

Although Christian Emmanuel Sanon is identified as the mastermind behind the murder of Moise, the prime minister, Ariel Henry, and the president's widow, Martine Moise, have told the international press that those responsible for the murder have not yet been arrested.

People…
The murder of Moise was captured on camera.
The process of who ordered the murder, is simply an open book. Due to the assistance the operation received from the very presidential guard and security detail.

The scapegoats plan fell apart the moment the First Lady was left alive. Her words sank the scapegoating of the Colombians as culprits.

This was an internal hit and coup.

The truth will never see light.

The elements privy to the true operation were executed as they got apprehended on their safe house and by the same people they were expecting extraction from.

He’s dead and nothing will change anytime soon in Haiti. And they are counting on this bias to carry on.

How will police and top officials finger themselves and self indictments issued?

..."Many Haitians rejoiced at news of the 46th arrest made in the ongoing investigation. But even as the number of suspects in custody mount, many critics say these arrests will not move the four-month-old case forward because so many powerful people are involved in the cover-up, they say. Others hope that rounding up the suspects involved is the first phase of what could become an upright justice system as Haiti looks to emerge from its crises.

Pierre Espérance, a human rights activist, is among those saying high-ranking authorities around the country have asked the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police (DCPJ) not to look for the financial backers of the crime. The executive director of the National Network of Human Rights Defense (RNDDH), a group that published an investigative report on the assassination, said the inquiry is jammed.

“Samir’s arrest doesn’t mean anything,” Espérance said. “There are more than 40 people in prison — you see people who planned, coordinated, and executed the assassination — but we still haven’t seen who paid for the crime. High authorities asked the judicial police not to go that route.”

“The investigation is blocked,” Espérance added."...

Arrest of one of the foot soldiers....
Doubt that they will ever get the Top Guns - who are still running the country,,,,

"A sprawling, months-long investigation into the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse achieved a breakthrough on Tuesday when U.S. authorities charged a former Colombian solider with conspiracy, the first charges brought forth since last summer’s killing. Mario Antonio Palacios Palacios, 43, also known as “Floro,” appeared in Miami federal court Tuesday afternoon after being arrested in the early morning by federal agents in Miami after arriving from Panama. He is the first person allegedly involved in the assassination of the Haitian president on July 7, 2021, to be formally charged with a crime. A former Colombian soldier, Palacios traveled to Haiti about a month before the assassination, according to a federal complaint unsealed Tuesday, and was in contact with at least one of three now-jailed Haitian Americans in Port-au-Prince before Moïse was shot 12 times and his wife, Martine, was left for dead with multiple gunshot wounds."...

And can you read that? If you do not have a Twitter account?
Given recent events showing a real US investigation is underway, and the fact that suspects Palacios, Jaar, Handal, & BIG NEWS (from Jamaica) John Joel Joseph are about to sing, it sure looks like there will be repercussions. Patience: it will take time if we want convictions.

An other question for Amb.Foot: Can a group of men pretending openly to be DEA agents have conducted such a spectacular operation in which a sitting président is killed at his résidence without serious repercussions from the USA government ?
