Premier dismayed at assassination of Haiti’s president

Premier G. Wayne Panton expressed dismay at the news of the armed attack early this morning, which took the life of Haiti’s President Jovenel Moise.

“It is with sadness that we learned this morning of the assassination of Mr. Moise and we continue to pray for the healing and recovery his wife, First Lady Martine Moise, who was injured in the shooting,” Mr. Panton said. “The entire incident is not only tragic, but it is extremely shocking. There is no room for violence in any democracy.”

The attack came at the President’s private residence early Wednesday morning.

CARICOM has requested all members to fly flags at half-mast for three days, beginning today, and again on the day of Mr. Moise’s funeral.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Haiti who have suffered so much already,” Mr. Panton said.
