Haiti Coup: Gunfights left citizens wounded, officers killed, stations vandalized, airport seized


According to reports, chaos upgraded as gunfights across Port-au-Prince left at least 19 citizens badly wounded, more than 5 police officers killed, police stations vandalized, cars and buses vandalized, airport seized, prisoners freed, and unelected Prime Minister Ariel Henry stuck in Kenya as Haitians are asking for his resignation.

 

It's unclear if this is a new COUP and revolution to overthrow the PM.

 

The Haitian National Police agents started gunfights with armed men across the capital as PM Henry in Kenya. The attacks targeted police officers, police stations, cars, the international airport, and the National Penitentiary which left some citizens wounded and officers killed. Many citizens said agents from the Haitian National Police are involved in human rights violations and abuses, according to public opinion.

 

Last month, five agents from another Haitian police agency called BSAP were executed by agents from the Haitian National Police during protests for the PM's resignation, which angered citizens across the country. This week, other videos going viral on social media show Haitian National Police agents executing unidentified citizens they held hostage, which angered Haitians.

 

Jimmy Chérizier, a former elite police officer known as Barbecue who now runs G9, claimed responsibility for the surge in attacks. He said the goal was to capture Haiti’s police chief and government ministers and prevent Henry's return.

 

Former President Jovenel Moise appointed Henry as PM before his assassination. The fifth judge, who was investigating the assassination of the former leader, released a final order with the names of 51 individuals he said were involved. Multiple sources also claimed Joseph Felix Badio, one of the suspects, spoke on the phone with PM Henry before and after the assassination.

 

Sent in by: Surin Octave, who claimed to be responsible for submitting press releases to good media outfits like Fresh Angle International, on behalf of “a political party by Haiti politician Werley Nortreus.”
