Washington | Martin Moss, the widow of Haitian President Joanel Moss, was assassinated in his own home by an armed commando in early July, bluntly describing the attack and expressing his suspicions in an interview with the New York Times on Friday.
“The only thing I saw before they killed him was their boots,” he said, before being flown to Florida for treatment until he was injured in the arm of an American newspaper.
The first woman in Haiti to wake up from a shooting on the night of July 7 explains that she hid her two children in the bathroom before going to bed on the advice of her husband.
“I think you will be safe,” he said his last words to her.
She said she was lying down because she was hit hard at first. “At the time, I felt like I was breathing blood in my mouth and I couldn’t breathe,” she explains.
Commando members then search the room, he tells the New York Times. She heard them talking to each other and to each other on the phone in Spanish. “They were looking for something in the room and they found it,” he says.
In the American newspaper, Widow Moss admits his suspicions. “I don’t understand how anyone could be hit by bullets,” she says of the security forces that have to protect her husband.
After the first shots, he called those responsible for his safety, he said. “I had Dmitry Hart, I had Jean Lockwell Civil,” he told her. “They told me they were coming.”
The head of the National Palace (USGPN)’s public security division and the president’s security coordinator have been arrested in connection with the investigation.
According to Martin Moss, those who cited the moment in this trial were the only executors. “Only oligarchy and organization can kill him,” he says.
To the New York Times, he gives a name: An influential businessman who recently entered politics, Rajnold Paulus. The newspaper explains that he believes he has something to gain from him, other than accusing him of ordering the assassination.
Contacting the American daily Mr. Paul Los opposed the strong objections and expressed support for an independent international inquiry.
Haitian police have so far arrested about 20 Colombian mercenaries and claim to have discovered a conspiracy organized by a group of Haitians with foreign contacts, but there are many gray areas.
