Were Haiti’s Capitalists Behind the Assassination of President Moïse?

(09.07.2021)

Haitian president Jovenel Moïse was assassinated this week by alleged mercenaries. In an interview with Jacobin, the English language editor of Haiti Liberté says he suspects that some of Haiti’s richest families hired the attackers to preempt a potential revolution — and possibly even trigger US military intervention.

Stecken Haitis Kapitalisten hinter der Ermordung von Präsident Jovenel Moïse?

„Reginald Boulos ist einer der reichsten Männer Haitis und derjenige, der am meisten mit Moïse verfeindet ist. Ich glaube, er ist aus dem Land geflohen. Gegen ihn lag ein Haftbefehl vor, was ihn auch motiviert haben könnte, eine Söldnereinheit zu unterstützen, um Moïse zu töten. Vielleicht war jedoch mehr Geld nötig, als eine Familie allein aufbringen konnte. Es könnten mehrere Familien beteiligt gewesen sein. So wie es bei früheren Putschen passiert ist, wie etwa dem gegen den ehemaligen Präsidenten Jean-Bertrand Aristide ‒ damals wurde in der Bourgeoisie eine Sammlung gemacht, und sie bekamen Zehntausende Dollar zusammen, um den Putsch 1991 zu unterstützen.“

OK I’ve confirmed w/ 4 different sources inclu police: Dimitri Herard, head of presidential guard, is not under arrest. He’s on administrative leave, in isolation. More arrests — and suspects being sought — in shocking killing of Haitian president Moïse

Head of Haitian presidential guard in custody as hunt for masterminds behind assassination continues

The detention of Dimitri Hérard was confirmed by Bed-Ford Claude, a Haitian prosecutor; Israel Jacky Cantave, a spokesperson for Haiti’s prime minister; and Carl Martin, a close friend and colleague of Hérard’s. Much public anger has been directed against Hérard, as Haitians wonder how a team of alleged assassins appeared to easily infiltrate Moïse’s residence only to be later swiftly taken into custody.

It isn’t clear on what charges, if any, Hérard is being held. “The justice [system] wants him to answer questions,” Claude told The Washington Post.

Several tied to Haiti assassination plot were previously US law enforcement informants

Haitian President Jovenel Moise was killed last Wednesday in an operation that Haitian authorities say involved at least 28 people, many of them Colombian mercenaries hired through a Florida-based security company.

At least one of the men arrested in connection to the assassination by Haitian authorities previously worked as an informant for the US Drug Enforcement Administration, the DEA said in a statement in response to CNN.

Hands Off Haiti!

Nonetheless, the American political and media establishments seem to blithely assume that Haiti’s internal affairs are very much America’s business. State Department spokesman Ned Price says “It is still the view of the United States that elections this year should proceed.” An “electoral timetable” proposed by Moïse was “backed by the Biden administration, though it rejected plans to hold a constitutional referendum.”
