Haiti - FLASH : Rodolphe Jaar sentenced to life imprisonment in the USA in the assassination of President Moïse
Friday, June 2nd, 2023, Federal Judge José E. Martínez sentenced to life imprisonment the Haitian-Chilean businessman Rodolphe Jaar (50 years old), a little more than 2 months after declared himself guilty for helping a commando of former Colombian soldiers to assassinate President Jovenel 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

Rodolphe Jaar as part of a sentence reduction agreement with the American justice, had pleaded guilty on March 24, 2023 to having conspired to commit murder or kidnapping outside the United States and to have provided support material leading to death https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-39157-haiti-flash-assassination-of-the-president-rodolphe-jaar-pleads-guilty.html

Jaar faced a maximum sentence of life in prison, but by pleading guilty he had entered into a plea agreement pledging to help the investigation in the hope of receiving a lighter sentence in exchange.

However, the prosecution explained to the judge in documents submitted before the sentencing hearing that by pleading guilty Jaar had admitted responsibility and deserved the maximum sentence. His lawyer (assigned ex officio), Frank Schwartz, had insisted that his client's sentence be lighter thanks to the collaboration agreement with the American Government...

In addition to Jaar, those accused of participating in the murder who are incarcerated in Miami include former Colombian servicemen Mario Palacios and Germán Alejandro Rivera García; former Haitian senator John Joel Joseph; Haitian-Americans James Solages, Joseph Vincent and Christian Emmanuel Sanon; the American Federick Joseph Bergmann; the Colombian Arcángel Pretel Ortiz, the Venezuelan-American Antonio Intriago and the Ecuadorian-American financier Walter Veintemilla.

For its part, the Haitian government has arrested more than 40 people for their alleged role in the murder, including 18 former Colombian soldiers.
