CAP-HAITIEN — As the Haitian government and the international community discussed providing assistance to end the country’s ongoing violence and gridlock over the last week, Haiti’s most notorious gang leader released a transition plan he says is necessary to avoid future lockdowns.

Jimmy "Barbecue" Chérizier, head of the Force Revolutionary G9 Family & Allies, told The Haitian Times in an exclusive interview about the six-page plan he released Oct. 2. This, despite him being seen widely as a major perpetrator of Haiti's gang violence and a key reason Haiti’s government requested armed support from abroad to wrest control of a key fuel facility from him.
