Man wanted in Moïse assassination being held “illegally” in Turkey, family says – Haitian Times

The Haitian Times
Bridging the gap
Earlier this month, courts in Turkey ordered Samir Handal to be released after not finding sufficient reasons from Haiti for his extradition in the Jovenel Moïse assassination case. But more than three weeks later, his family says, Turkey has not released the Jordanian-Haitian businessman.
In an exclusive interview with The Haitian Times, a close family member, who asked that her name not be disclosed for safety reasons, said Handal is now being held illegally after being set to return to Miami. 
“It’s a form of kidnapping…He’s illegally being held in Turkey right now,” Handal’s family member said.
