Widow of Assassinated Haitian President Jovenel Moise Testifies Before Magistrate

The widow of slain Haitian president Jovenel Moise testified on Wednesday regarding the assassination of her husband.

Former Haitian first lady Martine Moise, who was also seriously wounded during her husband’s assassination, arrived in the prosecutors’ office in the capital Port-au-Prince and delivered testimony to investigating judge Garry Orelien.

“Everybody says that in my country we won’t get justice. Even if people are telling me this, that’s where I’ll start to seek justice,” Moise said in an impromptu statement in the court.

“We’ll ask for justice in the morning, in the afternoon, at night, because I won’t stop until I get justice,” she added.

Several dozen supporters of the former president gathered in front of the structure to demonstrate their support. 

Moise made no public statement as she exited the prosecutor’s office.

Authorities in Haiti said over 40 people had been arrested for the death, but it’s unknown who planned it or how they got inside the president’s house. Moise was killed at home by a squad of Colombian mercenaries.
