Haitian judge indicts former first lady in president’s murder

A Haitian judge has accused the widow of the assassinated president Jovenel Moïse of being involved in his killing, along with more than 50 other suspects, according to a leaked report. Martine Moïse, who survived the attack on their home in July 2021, is charged with complicity and criminal association by Judge Walther Voltaire, who is leading the investigation into the case. The judge claims that Martine Moïse had plans to succeed her husband as president and that she gave inconsistent statements about the night of the murder. The report also alleges that she removed some items from the National Palace two days before the assassination.

The widow of Haiti’s late President Jovenel Moïse was indicted by a Haitian judge in connection to his murder.

However, the report does not provide any direct evidence of Martine Moïse’s role in the plot or its execution. She has not been arrested or questioned by the authorities and is believed to be living in the U.S. She has repeatedly called for an international tribunal to investigate the case and has filed a lawsuit against the accused in a U.S. court. She has not commented on the indictment.

Among the other suspects indicted by the judge are former prime minister Claude Joseph, who briefly claimed power after the assassination, and former police chief Léon Charles, who face charges of murder and attempted murder. The case involves more than 40 people who have been arrested, including 18 Colombian mercenaries and 20 Haitian police officers.

The investigation has been marred by delays, threats, and controversies, and has seen five judges resign or withdraw from the case. The current prime minister, Ariel Henry, has been accused by some of the suspects of using the justice system as a political weapon.
