Former senator Moïse Jean-Charles arrested in US, deported to Haiti
Former senator, presidential candidate Moïse Jean-Charles arrested in United States, deported to Haiti after trip to Africa.
Moïse Jean-Charles spoke briefly as he arrived at the Toussaint Louverture International Airport, looking distraught. It wasn’t immediately clear why he was deported or whether he faces any charges.
He said U.S. authorities detained him on Monday as he returned from Nigeria and interrogated him about his recent trip to Africa. He said he spent the night in jail.
“They’ve forbidden me from entering the U.S. for the next five years," he said. "They’ve cancelled the visa and they’ve put me in jail. It’s a humiliating thing.”
