They will be subjet of a thorough and rigorous investigation by the competent authorities with a view to finding their perpetrators and bringing them before the judicial authorities appointed for that purpose."
President Moïse renews to the archeloise population all his commitment to find a definitive and satisfactory solution to this crisis which has to too long lasted and invites this population not to yield "to the extremists".
The Office of the Presidency "congratulates the specialized units of the National Police of Haiti in charge of the security of the Head of State for their promptness and professionalism and reminds everyone that the establishment of a democratic society can only be achieved through the principles enacted by the law [...]"
