Haiti requests Moϊse suspect be handed over from Jamaica – New York Carib News – NYCaribNews

The fourth international fugitive arrested in Haiti assassination plot of former President Jovenel Moϊse is now the subject of controversy between Haiti and Jamaica, as the former demands he be handed over.
John Joël Joseph, a former Haitian senator, has been arrested by Jamaican police in connection with the assassination of Jovenel Moïse. Joseph, an opponent of Moïse’s Haitian Tet Kale Party (PHTK), had been evading arrest for more than six months before he was apprehended in January.
A 122-page police report obtained by the Associated Press states that Joseph was a leader of the assassination plot, and had paid for the assassins’ rental cars and met with other suspects before the murder occurred.
The Miami Herald is now reporting that the request for John Joël Joseph was sent to Jamaica on March 10, the same day that he and members of his family appeared in a Kingston court, where a judge put off a decision on his fate.
Haiti and Jamaica do not share an extradition agreement, and it is unclear if Haitian authorities are requesting Joseph’s deportation or extradition.
Moϊse was killed at his private residence overlooking the capital on July 7, 2021. He was reportedly shot 12 times and had bullet wounds to his forehead and several to his torso.
