Fifteen of those Colombians have actually been detained while three were killed in a gun fight and eight stay fugitives.

to hisnow-removed Facebook page The Haitian Times reported Solages likewise used to work as a security guard for both Reginald Boulos and Dimitri Vorbe, 2 popular members of Haiti’s small bourgeoisie. Although at first friendly to him, they both became bitter opponents of Moïse. Boulos was also a prominent fan of previous coups in 1991 and 2004 versus President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. The Boulos family is among the most affluent in Haiti and owns a pharmaceutical business that, in 1996, was accountable for poisoning scores of kids with its tainted fever medication, some fatally.

Given that the July 6-8, 2018 national uprising against the IMF-dictated hike of fuel prices, Boulos has actually tried to recast himself as a popular and progressive figure(after among his shops was burned and robbed), heading a political party called the Third Method Motion(MTV).

Lots of think Boulos is the intellectual author and financial backer of Moïse’s murder.

“Solage’s employment by Boulos and midpoint to the operation appears to confirm the growing popular consensus in Haiti that this controversial merchant-turned-politician was the primary backer of Moïse’s assassination,”discussed reporter Kim Ives, continuing: A great deal of factors have been indicating his involvement: The arrival of the mercenaries in 9 brand name new Nissan Patrol automobiles

without license plates suggests that they were lorries coming from the Nissan dealership owned by Reginald Boulos.
