Colombia president: evidence implicates ex-soldiers in Haiti
Colombian President Iván Duque says there is evidence and testimony that seriously implicate “practically all” of the former Colombian soldiers being held in Haiti in the assassination of president, Jovenel Moïse.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Duque said Wednesday that the arrested ex-soldiers still need to be tried. But, he adds, “clearly, based on the testimony of many,” it is evident “that there is a level of implication” in the July 7 killing of Jovenel Moïse.
Duque struck a harsher tone than in the past regarding the 18 ex-Colombian soldiers held in Haiti since shortly after president Moïse was shot to death in his home in Port-au-Prince.
