Michel Martelly questioned over successor Moise’s murder
Former President Michel Martelly appeared Tuesday before Judge Walther Wesser Voltaire, who is investigating the assassination of his successor, President Jovenel Moise.
Michel Joseph Martelly was questioned by the judge for four hours and did not make any statements to the media after leaving the hearing.
Later, the former president posted a message on his X account (formerly Twitter): “Out of respect for the law and the judicial authorities of my country, I appeared today before Judge Walther W. Voltaire in connection with the assassination of President Jovenel Moise.”
“Respecting the principle of secrecy of the investigation, I told the judge that I support everything that the prosecutor’s office is doing to complete the investigation so that it can identify and punish the culprits involved in the magnitude of this crime,” added Martelly.
Martelly’s lawyer, Mario Delcy, told the media that his client would give his “full support” to the investigation.
“former president Michel Martelly has answered all the questions put to him by the honorable judge,” the lawyer said.
