Haiti - Extradition of Handal : Turkey asks for more info and guarantees from Haiti
Samir Handal under Interpol warrant (red notice), arrested on his arrival in Turkey on a Turkish Airlines flight from Miami on November 15, 2021, in transit to Jordan for a family visit, is currently imprisoned in Istanbul.

Suspected by Haiti of having participated in the plot that led to the assassination of President Moïse on July 7, 2021 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34162-haiti-flash-president-jovenel-moise-assassinated-by-mercenaries-official-updated-7am-+-video.html although the judicial authorities have never publicly specified what Handal was specifically accused of, Haiti provided on December 21 to the Turkish Embassy in the Dominican Republic, all the documents (translated and certified) requested by the Turkish authorities in the context of a possible judicial transfer of Samir Handal to Haiti in the absence of an extradition treaty between Haiti and Turkey.

However, Turkish authorities are now asking Haitian justice before January 21, 2022 for further information under Turkish law (#6706) governing the extradition process in order to complete Haiti's request procedure : This is in particular to provide "[...] a guarantee that the crimes which are the basis of the request for extradition do not require the death penalty or a punishment incompatible with human dignity. A notification of the type of penalty incurred (imprisonment, life imprisonment or aggravated life imprisonment) and the maximum penalty period, separately for each of the offenses included in the extradition request. As well as the texts of Haitian law (translated into Turkish) which regulate the alleged offenses constituting the justification for the extradition request."
