Haiti - Obituary : Me Claudy Gassant died, suicide or murder ?
On Saturday July 31, 2021, the former Commissioner of the Government of Port-au-Prince Me Claudy Gassant was found dead in his residence in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic where he lived with his family. According to several sources Me Claudy Gassant "would have committed suicide". However, the circumstances surrounding Gassant's death do not seem clear. Agents from the National Investigation Department went to the scene to determine whether it was a suicide or a murder. At least 4 people were arrested for questioning, including the wife and a neighbor of Gassant.

Recall that it was Me Claude Gassant who had investigated the case of the assassination of the former Director of Radio Haiti Inter, Jean Léopold Dominique. Gassant was Secretary of State for Justice under the Préval Government, Consul of Haiti in Santiago and former Director General of the Anti-Corruption Unit (2019-2020).

First reactions :
Frantz Exantus Secretary of State for Communication :
"I am devastated by the news of the death of my friend Claudy Gassant in the Dominican Republic. Honest, courageous and competent, he has always proven himself in all the positions he has occupied. An independent investigation is called for."

Former Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe :
"It is with deep sadness that I see that Claudy Gassant... is no longer with us. Peace to his soul. Goodbye Claudy."
