Police inspector Carl Henry Boucher denied the accusation that he directed a group of police officers into a trap while looking at the videos from their vehicles’ drone cameras on Friday.
Five of the officers died, eight were injured. Haiti is in national mourning.
“When I arrived, the armored vehicles were already inside Village de Dieu,” Boucher said. “I want to know the reasons why I’m asked to give an explanation. What did I do wrong? What was my role in the operation? Was I the head of the operation? Did I have any responsibilities for the operation?”
