The assassination of the Haitian president came amid a growing political and economic crisis and an increase in gang violence.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador lamented the assassination of the president of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, and his wife, Martine Moïse, on Tuesday night at his residence.

“I embrace the people of Haiti for the unfortunate assassination of the president of that country and his wife. It is something that we very much regret. The president of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, was in the act of inauguration, when I assumed the presidency of Mexico” , He said.

The murder Tuesday night came amid a growing political and economic crisis and increased gang violence.

During the morning conference, López Obrador commented that the Government of Mexico was about to send 150 thousand doses of anticovid vaccines to Haiti.

“It is a poor people, in need of international help and what happened is very regrettable. We pay tribute to them, the people and the Government of Mexico,” said the president.

The murder of the Haitian president and his wife was expressed in a statement by the country’s interim prime minister, Claude Joseph, who described the act as “detestable, inhuman and barbarous.”

Joseph claimed that the Haitian National Police and other authorities had the situation in the Caribbean country under control.

Moïse, de 53 años, llevaba más de dos años de gobierno por decreto, luego de que el país caribeño no celebrara unas elecciones previstas, lo que llevó a disolver el Parlamento.
