The first lady of Haiti, Martine Moise, arrived on Wednesday in an ambulance plane at the Fort Lauderdale executive airport, north of Miami, to be treated for the serious injuries she suffered in the attack in which President Jovenel was shot dead. Moise.
The Haitian ambassador in Washington, Bocchit Edmond, indicated that Martine Moise is ” stable, but in critical condition “; and explained that all possible “efforts” were made in Haiti to transfer her to Miami. “Thank God she’s not dying,” he said.
According to local South Florida media videos, the Trinty Air Ambulance plane that brought the first lady landed at around 3:30 p.m. (19:30 GMT) at a Fort Lauderdale executive airport.
Initially, it was reported that he was going to receive treatment at Baptist Hospital in South Florida, but his admission to the trauma centre at Jackson Memorial Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the world, was finally confirmed.
The president’s daughter, Jomarlie, was at home during the attack but hid in an alcove, Magistrate Carl Henry Destin told Le Nouvelliste newspaper.
The US State Department called for the continuation of the process towards the legislative and presidential elections originally scheduled for September 26, 2021, with a second-round on November 21.
Before the arrival of Martine Moise, congressmen from Florida and leaders of the Haitian community expressed their fear that the situation in Haiti would deteriorate further in the poorest country on the continent.
Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, the representative of the district where the large Haitian community is concentrated in South Florida, urged the acting Prime Minister of Haiti, Claude Joseph, to ask US President Joe Biden to provide “additional security” to his country.
Wilson, from the Democratic Party and with strong ties to Haiti as the representative in Congress of the district where Little Haiti is located, urged the Haitian people to “remain calm during this international crisis and to unite to save their nation,” wrote the congressman on Twitter.
Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio said the “cowardly cold-blooded assassination of President Moise will only bring more hardship to the people of Haiti and further destabilize the economy.”
The Consulate General of Haiti in Miami, which serves a community that reaches some 400,000 people throughout Florida, was closed, according to Efe, and the only signs of the assassination were the flag at half-mast and a bouquet that someone left at the gate.
Some residents of Little Haiti expressed to local media their fear that violence would break out in the oldest republic in America and at the same time the least developed country on the continent. “Violence calls for violence and is not a solution to the crisis in the country,” said Father Reginald Jean-Mary, pastor of Notre Dame D’Haiti parish.
Haiti has suffered a strong political crisis since mid-2018 and experienced its most serious moment to date on February 7, the day on which Moise denounced that the opposition, with the support of some judges, was plotting a coup.
