Haiti’s Prime Minister asked to explain connection to suspect in Moïse assassination

Haiti’s Prime Minister Ariel Henry

Haiti’s head prosecutor has invited Prime Minister Ariel Henry to explain his connection to the main suspect in the killing of President Jovenel Moïse.

President Moïse was assassinated when gunmen stormed his home on July 7th.

Prosecutor Bedford Claude said Mr. Henry was being “invited” to attend, as he did not have the authority to officially summon him.

Mr. Claude said that Mr. Henry had multiple phone calls with suspect Joseph Felix Badio just hours after the assassination.

Records obtained from phone operator Digicel confirmed that Mr. Badio and Mr. Henry spoke twice just hours after President Moïse’s killing.

Geo-location data also showed that Mr. Badio, whose whereabouts are currently unknown, was speaking from the scene of the crime.
