Florida citizen apprehended as suspect in Haiti following president assassination

Christian Emmanuel Sanon, a 60-year-old Haitian Florida citizen, was apprehended as the latest suspect in the ongoing investigation of the homicide of President Jovenel Moïse. Sanon has suspected political motives and is thought to be the mastermind of the operation.

Head of Haitian national police, Leon Charles, speaks out about Sanon’s entrance to Haiti. Sanon allegedly flew into Haiti on a private jet along with several gunmen, after they arrived, they were accompanied by 22 additional suspects. At least five suspects are still at large.

Sanon brands the leaders of Haiti as corrupt, saying that a country rich in resources such as oil, uranium, and gold, should not be poor in wealth under normal circumstances. He believes that the Haitian government exploits the country’s resources and does not look after its people.

Decorated officials of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security have been sent by the United States to support the investigation.
