According to CNN, the Haitian top prosecutor is seeking to bring charges against Ariel Henry in connection with the assassination of the late President Jovenel Moise.
CNN reports that a key suspect, former Haitian Justice Ministry official Joseph Felix Badio, called Henry after the murder, “Port-au-Prince’s chief prosecutor Bed-Ford Claude invited Henry to testify about the case, citing evidence that a key suspect in the assassination called him in the hours after the murder.”
Henry was due in court to testify on Tuesday morning, CNN also reports.
It’s believed that Badio is on the run, CNN also reports.
According to reports, a press officer for the Prime Minister did say a “press conference would be held shortly.”
As a result, Henry has been barred from leaving the country.
