Retired General of the Armed Forces of Haiti (FAd'H), Hérard Abraham (82) (born in Port-au-Prince on July 28, 1940), Haitian soldier and statesman, died on Wednesday August 24, 2022 of natural cause.

Reactions to the death of General Hérard Abraham :

Prime Minister Ariel Henry :
"Uncovering, dismayed, to salute the departure of General Hérard ABRAHAM, I pay a well-deserved tribute to a moderate and exemplary Haitian soldier and statesman. A worthy son of the fatherland, the President General has always been loyal to his country, which he has served in difficult times. The government bows with respect to the remains of this great man."

Bocchit Edmond, Ambassador of Haiti in Washington :
"I bow before the remains of General Hérard Abraham, Military and former Minister of Foreign Affairs. I had the privilege of working with him during his time at the Ministry while I was stationed in Panama. A diplomat and a man of openness, he served his country with honour. Rest in peace."

Ex-Presidential Advisor Guichard Doré :
"At a time when the state is losing control of the territory and the population is living in a complex and uncertain environment, the country is losing General Hérard Abraham. I salute the memory of this soldier who always fulfilled his duties and served the country in difficult times [...] The high office occupied by General Gérard Abraham did not change this man of duty. This soldier with whom I worked at the Independent Consultative Committee (ICC) for the development of the draft of the new Constitution, was concerned about the serious treatment of the question of security in the draft of the new constitution."
