Gang member accused of kidnapping Americans extradited to the US

Updated: Nov 27, 2023


Law enforcement authorities in Haiti said a man belonging to a violent gang accused of kidnapping four U.S. citizens has been extradited to the U.S.


Haiti's National Police said Tuesday that John Peter Fleronvil is affiliated with the gang known as “Kokorat San Ras," roughly translated to mean “Cohorts of No Race.”


Fleronvil was extradited on Monday and faces charges of abducting four U.S. citizens in the central Artibonite region in July 2022, police said.


Fleronvil was arrested in September in the northern coastal town of Fort Liberte as he tried to flee to the nearby border with the Dominican Republic, authorities said.


According to a recent U.N. report, “Kokorat San Ras, despite its limited numbers, is also a very brutal gang” that operates in the Artibonite region. Its roughly 20 members have “committed acts of extreme violence, forcing people to abandon large areas of cropland and threatening agricultural production.”


The gang has been accused of murder, robbery, rape, kidnapping and the hijacking of trucks and goods, according to the report.
