At least 11 members of the U.S. House of Representatives signed a letter sent to Michele J. Sison, the U.S. Ambassador to Haiti, asking her to help secure the release of several people arrested in the Feb. 7 alleged coup attempt.
The group of 23 people was arrested in Petit Bois, a commune 31 miles from Port-au-Prince. They’re now at the Croix-des-Bouquets Civil Prison, where an outbreak occurred last week. So far, only former Supreme Court Judge Ivickel Dabrésil has been released.
Among those still being held are General Police Inspector Marie-Louise Gauthier, Dr. Marie-Antoinette Gauthier, agronomist Louis Buteau and at least two police officers
