Haiti - FLASH : The kidnappers release 3 religious after 12 days of kidnapping
Thursday 22 April 2021, 12 days after the kidnapping of 10 people by the "400 Mawozo" gang https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-33471-haiti-politic-religious-kidnapped-by-deviant-elements-of-society.html the kidnappers freed 3 of the 9 people held captive.

These are 3 Haitian religious (out of 5) : Sister Anne-Marie Dortellus, Father Hugues Baptiste and Lovely Joseph confirmed Father Loudger Mazile Spokesperson for the Conference of Bishops of Haiti.

The two French religious : Father Michel Briand (67) and Sister Agnès Bordeau (80) as well as 2 Haitian religious and 2 lay people are still under hostage.

Let's recall that on April 14, the kidnappers agreed to release against ransom one of their hostages (the mother of father Jean Arnel Joseph), after his family had managed to raise the sum of $50,000.

It is not known if a ransom was paid for the release of these 3 hostages. Recall that the kidnappers initially demanded 1 million dollars of ransom to free all their hostages.

For its part, the Church excludes any ransom payment "a life cannot be bought like a commodity" declared Father Gilbert Peltro, Secretary General of the Haitian Conference of Religious.
