Haiti President Jovenel Moise Assassination: There has been an atmosphere of panic in the country after the assassination of Haiti’s President Jovenel Mosse. If sources in the US Congress are to be believed, Haiti has requested the Biden administration to send US troops. The government there says that the country is facing an unexpected situation. The Biden government did not comment on the specifics of the aid being provided to Haiti. But it said the US was responding to requests from Haiti police for investigation and security assistance. In this, senior officials of the FBI and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are being sent.
“We are assessing the situation in response to the Haiti government’s request for security and investigative assistance,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday. We are looking to see how we can help. Will send senior FBI and DHS officials to Port-au-Prince to assess this as soon as possible. Sources said that the scope of the mission was in the context of security of some important facilities. But no details were given on any period related to it.
Help sought in murder investigation
Another source in the US Congress said the word could also be “police”, the French word for “soldiers”. The request could include US troops guarding Haiti’s airport and ports as well as its gasoline stockpile, according to the New York Times, which first reported on the capability of US troops on the ground. The FBI said in a statement that the government of Haiti requested US assistance to investigate the assassination of President Mois. Currently, the FBI, with the support of the US Embassy in Haiti, is determining how we can best support this effort.
Human rights groups raised concerns
Meanwhile, requests for external security forces in Haiti are raising concerns for human rights groups and advocates. Guerlain Józef, executive director of the Haitian Bridge Alliance, said: “I don’t think we need outside forces to provide ‘security’ in Haiti.” We know and we have the history of the United Nations forces and the history of them after all. The United States occupied Haiti for nearly two decades in the early 20th century following the assassination of Haiti’s president in 1915. At least 15,000 Haiti citizens who resisted the occupation were killed.
many people arrested
Following the assassination of President Mose on Wednesday, Haiti’s interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph established a “state of siege” similar to martial law in the poverty-stricken country. Haiti security forces have arrested dozens of individuals, including two Haitian Americans. They are suspected of having committed the shocking murder of Mosse early in the morning at their home. State Department spokeswoman Jalina Porter said in a briefing to reporters on Friday that she declined to comment on the security situation on the ground in Haiti, but said the safety of State Department personnel is one of our top priorities.
US citizens instructed to leave the country
The US embassy has encouraged American citizens in Haiti to leave the country amid an unforeseen security situation. Haiti’s National Police said in an update posted on Facebook that at least 19 people had been arrested for alleged connections to the murder. Among them are two Americans of Haiti origin and 17 Colombians. Police said that at least six more people are being searched. The Americans arrested are James Soulage and Joseph Vincent, who are American citizens of Haiti descent. The State Department declined to provide information about the arrested American. The assassination of Haiti’s president has deepened the crisis in Haiti, already the poorest country in the West, which has faced political turmoil in the past few years.
