Reports have surfaced of former Haitian First Lady being accused of complicity in husband’s assassination

According to a copy of a criminal complaint obtained by The New York Times, Former Haitian First Lady Martine Moise, aged 49, finds herself accused of complicity by the capital’s top prosecutor, in the assassination of her husband, President Jovenel Moise, in July 2021.

While not directly implicated in the planning of Moise’s murder, allegations suggest that she may have harbored ambitions to succeed her husband in office, with contradictory statements contributing to suspicions of her involvement. However, her lawyer vehemently denies these claims, asserting her innocence.

The assassination of President Jovenel Moise was reportedly orchestrated by a group of Colombian hitmen hired by a Miami-based security company.

The subsequent chaos that ensued in Haiti’s political landscape further deepened the mystery surrounding Moise’s death, with no elections held to replace him. Prime Minister Ariel Henry assumed leadership, albeit under scrutiny, with allegations of his involvement in the assassination surfacing, including phone records linking him to a key conspirator.

As investigations unfold, both in Haiti and the United States, the former First Lady’s role in the events surrounding her husband’s murder remains under scrutiny. While Haitian authorities have recommended indictments against her and others, critics view these moves as politically motivated, designed to deflect attention from potential government involvement.

Legal proceedings are ongoing and separate charges are being brought against individuals involved in the plot in the United States, including Haitian law enforcement officers and members of Moise’s security detail.

Martine Moise’s potential involvement in upcoming trials in South Florida adds another layer of complexity to the unfolding saga.

    I have long stopped believing any news emanating from or presented about Haiti.

    I have come to believe that a lot of my Haitian friends are not as vested in the well being of their country as other non-Haitian nationals.

    I will continue to save my concerns and sympathies for my little troubled hot mess of an island.

      By now you’re old enough to know who is causing that, just say it, or look it up and don’t believe other people’s accounts especially paid mainstream media. The Haitians will never destroy their own country. It’s done by the same people who taught you that you sold your own people; not realizing they already wrote how these people fought very very hard to secure their country but still being punished for doing so. Don’t believe the lies, Haiti is majestic but being buried by those with nuclear weapons dangling fear at them to keep the island poor.

    People, people, it’s all about U S, French, Spanish and other western countries destabilizing tactics.
    Sanctions after sanctions are their weapons of mass destruction, for Haitian resources. Their other weapons are the IMF, World band and WTO among others, so that Haitians won’t be able to feed themselves. It’s a lesson in Barbarism for those countries who would have the audacity to seek freedom and independence from Europeans and European-Americans.

    Nothing to do with ineptness of the Haitian. If they are left to prosper like Norway, Israel, Ukraine and other free countries, they will thrive by enormous proportions, leaps and bonds. It’s an old tactic of blaming the victim. Get out, get your troops out and let freedom roll.

    Well at the right time I can see several First Ladies in the Caribbean, especially those politicians who helped their husbands in their corruption, will one day fall with their husbands if they too don’t help bring them down like Delilah brought down Samson

    The former First Lady of Haiti just barely escaped the assassination of her husband with her life. She was seriously injured by gunshots.

    Bad news sells. I seriously doubt her involvement in this intricate and very elaborate connivance.

    The goodly lady has to relive this nightmare every day for the rest of her days on this earth. Give the grieving lady a well deserved break.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 3 Thumb down 5

      Do you work with the FBI in Washington or with Scotland Yard in London? How can you say that you seriously doubt that? Had the shoes been on the other foot you would have seriously supported the accusation against Melissa Skerrit. Right? You were once a meteorologist predicting the business temperature in Dominica now, you are an FBI agent establishing a no guilt verdict against Haiti’s once First Lady.
