Haiti - FLASH : Arrest of Senator Guy Philippe
Thursday afternoon, the police (Office for the Fight against Drug Trafficking (BLTS)) has arrested the senator-elect of Grand'Anse Guy Philippe in Pétion-ville after leaving the premises of Radio Scoop FM, after his intervention on the show "Haïti Débat" by Gary Pierre Paul Charles. Guy Philippe had obtained his certificate at the premises of the Provisional Electoral Council earlier in the day. The BLTS acted under instructions from the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police (DCPJ).

Senator Joseph Lambert confirmed the information.

Let's recall that arrest warrants were issued against several individuals including Guy Philippe, whose names appear in the investigation of the Bureau of Criminal Affairs (BAC) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-17940-haiti-security-the-bac-wants-a-warrant-against-guy-philippe.html in the case of the attack on the police station of Les Cayes in the night from 15 to 16 June https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-17467-haiti-flash-an-armed-commando-attack-the-police-station-of-les-cayes.html

The Senator is also under a mandate from the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for "Conspiracy to Import Cocaine, Title 21, United States Code, Section 963; Conspiracy to Launder Monetary Instruments, Title 18, United States Code, Section 1956; and Engaging in Monetary Transactions in Property Derived from Specified Unlawful Activity, Title 18, United States Code, Section 1957."
