Haiti - FLASH : Canada sanctions Martelly, Lamothe and Céant
Sunday, November 20, 2022, 24 hours after the sanctions imposed against the Senator in office Rony Célestin, the former Senator Hervé Fourcand and the former President of the Chamber of Deputies Gary Bodeau https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-38176-haiti-flash-canada-imposes-sanctions-on-3-other-haitian-politicians.html , on the sidelines of the 18th Francophonie Summit in Djerba (Tunisia), within the framework of Security Council resolution 2653 United Nations https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-37944-haiti-crisis-at-the-un-haiti-welcomes-the-adoption-of-sanctions-and-recalls-the-urgency-of-armed-intervention.html Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mélanie Joly, announced that [...] Canada is imposing further sanctions in response to the egregious conduct of Haitian political elites who provide illicit financial and operational support to armed gangs. [...]

These latest sanctions target a former Haitian president and two former Haitian prime ministers suspected to protect and enable the illegal activities of armed criminal gangs in Haiti, including through money laundering and other acts of corruption, effectively freezing any assets they may hold in Canada. We will continue to pressure those responsible for the violence and insecurity in Haiti, and to uphold respect for human rights, democracy, and international peace. These sanctions build on three additional sanctions announced on November 19."

A few minutes after the names of those sanctioned were revealed, they are former President Michel Martelly, former Prime Minister Laurent Salvador Lamothe (under the Presidency Martelly) and former Prime Minister Jean-Henry Céant (under the Presidency of Jovenel Moïse).

Canada will announce other sanctions in the coming days and the United Nations is preparing a large list including businessmen operating in Haiti, which will make the application of sanctions against the Haitians concerned global.

The list of 6 sanctioned senior Haitian officials (effective November 17, 2022) appears on the Government of Canada website in the section "Serious violations of international peace and security in Haiti" to which is added the list entered into force on November 3rd, 2022 sanctioning the President of the Senate, Joseph Lambert and the former President of the Senate, Youri Latortue https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-38058-haiti-flash-chancellor-of-canada-melanie-joly-announces-sanctions-against-j-lambert-and-y-latortue.html

First to react to the 3 new sanctioned Jean-Henry Céant, said "I am unpleasantly surprised to learn that I have been sanctioned by Canada. Yet another assassination attempt on my character ! From India, at a conference on Peace and Non-Violence, I formed a council of lawyers in Haiti and Canada to have access to the file."
