3rd suspect in assassination of Haiti president brought to Miami for court appearance

The former senator, John Jöel Joseph, who had been detained in Jamaica before being brought to Miami Friday, acknowledged to FBI agents in a January interview that he had met with certain co-conspirators just before they “embarked on the mission to kill President Moïse,” according to an affidavit filed with the complaint.

Joseph also admitted in the interview that he helped obtain vehicles and tried to get firearms for the co-conspirators’ “operation” targeting Haiti’s leader, the affidavit says. Joseph’s goal was to become the prime minister under Moïse’s successor following the leader’s removal from office.
