Haiti - FLASH : Former Senator J-C Moïse expelled from the United States
Monday, January 24, the former mayor of Milot, Jean-Charles Moïse, former senator and leader of the radical opposition platform "Pitit Dessalin" who was returning from a trip to Niger (West Africa), in transit to Miami for Haiti, was questioned at length by immigration officials about the reasons for his trip to Niger and whether he had met in November 2021 with the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro.

Upon his arrival Tuesday at Toussaint Louverture International Airport, furious Jean-Charles Moïse spoke briefly, claiming not to know the reason for this expulsion. He explained that he was interrogated for almost 9 hours of time until midnight "They urged me to tell them the content of my discussions with each person I met on the African continent. I told them I won't say anything [...] they canceled my visa and banned me from entering the United States for the next five years and then they locked me in a room until 8:00 in the morning [...] It's a humiliating thing [....] then they put me on an American Airlines flight and deported me to Haiti."

Jean-Charles Moïse announced that he was going to take legal action against the Americans, claiming "The United States must tell me why they did all this. My imprisonment was illegal..." pointing out that in November 2021 he had never met with President Maduro.

However, it is true that Jean Charles Moïse is close to Maduro, whom he met several times, among others in 2019 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-26670-haiti-flash-jean-charles-moise-apologize-to-nicolas-maduro-and-insult-president-moise.html and in December 2020 after being personally invited by President Maduro https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-32452-haiti-news-zapping.html , it could be that it was these close relations with Maduro and his positions that displeased the Americans.

The American Embassy in Haiti has not yet officially reacted to this event.
