Official: Gang kills, burns former senator, nephew at Laboule 12
Former senator Yvon Buissereth was killed at Laboule 12 Saturday and his body set on fire along with his nephew, Government official said.
Yvon Buissereth, director of Haiti’s Public Company for the Promotion of Social Housing, and his nephew were traveling in a government-issued vehicle, Commissioner Jacques Lafontant said.
“It was a terrible incident,” he added.
Prime Minister Ariel Henry condemned Buissereth's killing as a “barbaric act” by armed gangs in Laboule.
“His assassins, as well as all the other criminals who sow mourning in the country, will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and must respond for their ignominious acts before justice,” he wrote Sunday in a social media post.
