Few months after the gruesome assassination of deceased Haitian President, Jovenel Moïse, a top prosecutor is asking a judge in the country to charge the current Prime Minster Ariel Henry for allege involvement in his death and for talking to the coup suspect on phone.

According to moguldom.com, the world has been wondering who actually pulled the strings leading to the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse in July.

Now, a top Haitian prosecutor is claiming that Haiti’s current Prime Minister Ariel Henry was involved. Henry spoke on the phone to a leading suspect in the hours after the killing of Moïse, according to Prosecutor Bed-Ford Claude.

Prime Minister Henry responded by firing the prosecutor, Reuters reported.

Twenty-three Colombian mercenaries and two Haitians (including one who resided in Florida) were rounded up in the attempted Hatian coup, but there has only been speculation on who ordered the hit. The country named other fugitive suspects as well.

Henry denied on Twitter that he had any links to the assassination. However, Claude asked a judge on Sept. 14 to charge Henry in connection with the assassination of Moïse, The Wall Street Journal reported.

“I want to say to those who have yet to understand, that diversionary maneuvers to sow confusion and prevent justice from doing its job serenely, will not succeed,” he tweeted.

“The real guilty ones, the intellectual authors and the backers of the hateful assassination of President Jovenel Moïse will be identified, brought to justice, and punished for their heinous crime,” he added.

Claude told Judge Garry Orélien in a letter that there was enough evidence to order the immediate indictment of Henry. “There are sufficient compromising elements…to prosecute Mr. Henry and to demand his outright indictment,” Claude wrote.

According to Claude, Henry had two phone calls in the hours after the assassination with a key suspect, former Justice Ministry official Joseph Felix Badio. Claude added that Badio, who remains a fugitive, spoke to the prime minister from the vicinity of the assassination, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The prime minister’s office released a letter from the prime minister to the prosecutor, dated Sept. 13, relieving him of his duties based on “serious administrative faults.”
