Haiti - FLASH : 2 Dominicans kidnapped in Port-au Prince, 2 million dollars in ransom demanded
Saturday February 20, 2021 at around 10:00 p.m. two Dominicans, members of a film crew, brothers Michael Enrique and Antonio Gerer Campusano Feliz and their Haitian interpreter were kidnapped in Haiti.

The incident occurred as they returned from a late filming in the south of the country near Jacmel, escorted by police. They were heading towards 5th avenue Bolosse, a sensitive area considered dangerous (southern entrance to the capital), when several heavily armed individuals forced the vehicle registered in the Dominican Republic to stop. Forced to leave their vehicle under threat, the 3 men were kidnapped while the bandits left with the victim's vehicle which was carrying expensive cinematographic equipment belonging to the Dominican company Miravistas, S.R.L as well as a generator.

Note that according to our sources, the participation of the two Dominican technicians and their equipment had been subcontracted by the Haitian film production company Muska Group.

According to unconfirmed information available from official sources, the kidnappers would demand $2 million for the release of the two residents.

In a brief statement, the Dominican Foreign Ministry wrote "[...] we are closely following the investigation carried out by the Haitian authorities concerning the kidnapping in Haiti of two Dominican nationals [...]" ensuring that the Dominican authorities do all their efforts for the safe return of his two hostages and their equipment.
