Following the appearance, Prosecutor Graves and Special Agent George Piro, in charge of the FBI's field office in Miami, announced in a press release from the Department of Justice (DOJ), that these 4 people had been indicted for having conspired to smuggle weapons into Haiti to the "400 Mawozo" gang.

The indictment charges Joly Germine alias "Yonyon", 29, a Haitian national; Eliande Tunis, 43, US citizen, from Pompano Beach, Florida; Jocelyn Dor, 29, a Haitian citizen who resided in Orlando, Florida and Walder St. Louis, 33, a Haitian citizen who resided in Miami of conspiracy to violate export control, smuggling and money laundering.

Tunis, Dor and St. Louis, who all resided in Florida, purchased a number of firearms from Florida gun shops, including rifles, pistols and handguns, while falsely claiming they were the "true buyers" of these firearms. Tunis, Dor and Saint-Louis then smuggled the firearms and ammunition into Haiti, concealing them in containers from September to November 2021.

The indictment also describes the defendants' use of the US financial system to facilitate illegal gun purchases.

"Yonyon" accused of kidnapping and forcible confinement against American citizens, will appear again on May 17.
