US charges third man over Haitian President Moise’s killing
Aljazeera says the United States has charged a former Haitian senator in relation to the assassination of the country’s President Jovenel Moise in July last year, the Justice Department announced.
In a statement, the department said 51-year-old John Joel Joseph made his first US court appearance in Miami on Monday afternoon. Joseph was extradited to the US from Jamaica on Friday.
He was charged with conspiring to commit murder or kidnapping outside the United States and providing material support resulting in death, knowing or intending that such material support would be used to prepare for or carry out the conspiracy to kill or kidnap”, the department said.
Joseph is the third person charged in the US in relation to what authorities say was a wide-reaching plot involving at least 20 Colombian citizens and several dual US-Haitian nationals that ultimately led to the killing of Moise.
