Haiti requests From U.N an international investigation
Haiti's government has requested help from the United Nations to conduct an international investigation into the killing of former President Jovenel Moise.
Haiti requested the aid in a letter dated Aug. 3 addressed to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the embassy in the Dominican Republic said on Thursday in a statement.
Specifically, Haiti called for an "international commission of inquiry" to be formed, along with a special court to prosecute the suspects.
The letter, signed by foreign minister Claude Joseph, said that Haiti considered the attack on Jovenel Moise in his residence an international crime due to the alleged role of foreigners in planning, financing and carrying it out.
Haiti also said the U.N. support should follow the model of its inquiry into a 2005 terrorist attack in Lebanon, which killed 22 people, including the prime minister.
