Neither Palacio's lawyers nor Haitian government officials have commented yet.

Former Haitian Chancellor Claude Joseph deplores this decision "[...] This is a heavy blow to the investigation. Unfortunately, no follow-up has been carried out by the current team [...] There is no political will to advance the investigation into the assassination of Jovenel Moïse."

It only remains to know the position of the Colombian Government on the case of Mario Antonio Palacios, while 18 Colombians are still in the hands of Haitian justice https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34199-haiti-assassination-of-the-president-names-of-the-20-members-of-the-commando-arrested-5-others-still-on-the-run.html as part of the investigation of the file on the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34162-haiti-flash-president-jovenel-moise-assassinated-by-mercenaries-official-updated-7am-+-video.html
