Rodolphe Jaar Extradited to US
U.S. authorities said on Wednesday that a businessman who is a suspect in the July 7 killing of President Jovenel Moïse was extradited to face criminal charges in Miami.
Rodolphe Jaar will be the second person to stand trial in the United States in the death of Jovenel Moise in July last year. A retired Colombian soldier, Mario Palacios, was charged on Jan. 4 for his alleged role in the killing.
Jaar fled from Haiti after the attack at the presidential palace and was arrested in the neighboring Dominican Republic on Jan. 7, exactly six months after the assassination.
Rodolphe Jaar is to make an initial court appearance Thursday to hear the charges against him, the Justice Department official said.
