Prison officials, cops detained after gang leader walks out of jail in Haiti
Authorities in Haiti have arrested a prison director, a police officer and a court clerk accused of releasing a gang leader in exchange for bribes, a prosecutor said Tuesday.
Police are now searching for an alleged gang leader known as Ti Samy who was released over the weekend from a prison in the north coastal city of Fort Liberte, prosecutor Eno Zephyrin told local media.
He said the investigation is ongoing and that more people might be involved.
The fugitive suspect faces charges including murder and possession of illegal weapons.
