If true this means that they probably came into Haiti via the Dominican Republic, as during the coup against Aristide. Funny thing that when they report on murders in the USA they can’t call foreigners foreigners. The Dominican Republic is on the same tiny island, so these “foreigners” are like from a neighboring state. Of course, they could be from Venezuela, because of PetroCaribe monies: “Joseph described the attackers as “foreigners” during an interview with a Port-au-Prince radio station Wednesday morning and said some group members spoke in Spanish.” (VOA News, July 7, 2021)

From 2019: “Jovenel Moise is accused of fraudulently benefiting from funds generated by the PetroCaribe oil alliance with Venezuela. The allegations were made in an official report handed to Haiti’s Senate on May 31 [2019]. Haiti’s Superior Court of Accounts and Administrative Litigation (Cour Superieure de Comptes et du Contentieux Administratif), a nonpartisan institution tasked with overseeing the government’s budget, spending and allocation of funds, prepared the report detailing irregularities and alleged abuse of funds generated under the PetroCaribe agreement. The $3.8 billion in oil revenue that went missing had been earmarked for infrastructure projects, education and social programs.” (Lemaire; Mergenat, VOA News, 2019)

The big question remains of why would the then Venezuelan President Chavez trust then Haitian President Martelly and then Prime Minister Lamothe? Why give them the cheap oil? What did he get in exchange? Chavez had to know Martelly’s reputation as connected to death-squads and macoutes. Martelly and Lamothe are the antithesis of what Chavez claimed to be.

Biden regime change? The timing suggests that, but there are many other actors in Haiti – France, Canada, Venezuela, mafia, etc.

From VOD, the Voice of Biden-Dem propaganda network, formerly Voice of America (VOA): “Haiti Prime Minister Appeals for Calm After President Shot Dead By VOA News July 07, 2021 08:31 AM

Haitian interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph has appealed for calm after President Jovenel Moïse was shot dead overnight in an attack at his private residence. 

In a statement Wednesday, Joseph said an unidentified group of people who attacked the president’s private residence, located in a suburb of the capital, Port-au-Prince, were responsible for the killing, which he called a “hateful, inhuman and barbaric act.”   

Joseph described the attackers as “foreigners” during an interview with a Port-au-Prince radio station Wednesday morning and said some group members spoke in Spanish.  

He also said Moïse’s wife, Martine, was injured and taken to a hospital for treatment.  
 
“The president’s wife is alive and is being treated,” Joseph confirmed to local radio station Magik 9.  

Joseph said the national police force is in control of the situation now and that measures have been taken to “protect the nation.” He vowed to ensure the continuity of government adding that “we are a democracy.” 
 
Joseph said he had met with officials of the National Police Force and that he plans to address the nation later today.  
 
The U.S. is “assessing” the attack and U.S. President Joe Biden will be briefed on the situation in Haiti, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told MSNBC.   
 
Haiti has been experiencing political instability and division as well as a rise in gang violence.  

Last week in Port-au-Prince, gang leader Jimmy Cherisier, who is known by the nickname Barbeque, took to the streets to protest Moise’s government, calling on him to resign.  
 
“Jovenel (Moise) must go!” Cherisier told reporters during the protest. “A new group of people needs to lead this country and we must sit together around a table, have a national dialogue so we can redefine this country.”
