Haitian National Police (PNH) officers dressed in civilian clothing burned at least three vehicles in Nazon, Port-au-Prince on Saturday. The officers were protesting the arrest of five colleagues arrested for abandoning their post in front of Monferrier Dorval’s house.
Dorval, who was the head of the Port-au-Prince bar, was assassinated Aug. 28 in his home. His murder is still under investigation.
The five officers, members a special PNH unit known as UMDO, were transported to the national penitentiary Friday night. Their names remain undisclosed and PNH wasn’t available for comments.
