Haitian prosecutor seeks charges against Prime Minister Ariel Henry in connection with former President Moise’s assassination

Haiti’s chief prosecutor has asked a judge to charge Prime Minister Ariel Henry in the assassination of former President Jovenel Moïse, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.

Bedford Claude, Port-au-Prince’s chief prosecutor, said last week that Henry spoke with one of the suspects in the assassination just hours after Moïse’s death, the Associated Press reported.

“There are enough compromising elements … to prosecute Henry and ask for his outright indictment,” Claude wrote in a request to a judge.

Moïse was killed inside his home by armed gunmen on July 7.
