CAP-HAITIEN — Families and supporters gathered in this Northern Haiti city July 7 to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the murder of former President Jovenel Moise with a requiem mass at his burial place. The mass also served as a protest as mourners called for justice and demanded a thorough investigation to find the masterminds behind his killing.
Haiti's 58th president was assassinated one year ago at his residence in Pèlerin, Pétion-Ville.
Former First Lady Martine Moise and her children took part. The service was interrupted many times by a group of supporters wearing white t-shirts with a photo of the former president, crying out jistis, jistis to the sound of a street rara band.
Family and supporters commemorated July 7 the one-year anniversary of the murder of former President Jovenel Moise with a requiem mass at his burial ground in the family home located in Madeline, Cap-Haitien.
