Washington, DC – The Haitian Diaspora Political Action Committee (HDPAC), strongly
condemns the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse and the attempted assassination of his wife,
the First Lady Martine Moïse in the early hours of July 7, 2021, at their residence in Pelerin, Haiti.
HDPAC had serious differences with Mr Moïse’s governance. We believe his constitutional term
of office ended on February 7, 2021, and we have been working with US Policy makers and Civil
Society in the US and Haiti to facilitate an orderly transition to replace Mr. Moïse. Nevertheless,
we decry this crime against Mr. Moïse and his family. Like every other human being, he did not
deserve to be killed.
This crime against the state must be investigated and HDPAC is calling on the American
government generally and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) particularly to assist the
Haitian government in investigating this odious crime and to ensure that the criminals be brought
to justice.
HDPAC presents its sincere condolences to the Moïse family and the Haitian people. We are
calling on all stakeholders especially members of the opposition, civil society, the Haitian
Diaspora, and the international community to come together to broker a peaceful government of
national consensus to organize overdue elections in Haiti as soon as possible.
