Haiti: Arrests for “coup” against President Haiti

President Jovenel Moïse of Haiti has arrested more than 20 opponents who he believes were planning a coup. Among them is a senior police officer and a chief justice who should have become the new head of state.

Moïse argues with the opposition about when his term will end. He himself argues that he does not have to leave until next year, because an interim president was appointed for a year after the departure of his predecessor Martelly.

Opponents argue that his five-year tenure started the moment Martelly left. That means that yesterday was officially his last day.
