Haiti: Gang leader holding French worshippers says France owes Haiti money

The leader of 400 Mawozo, a gang that kidnapped 10 Catholic worshippers last week, said in a radio interview that two French citizens in the group are “important” because France owes Haiti money.

“The French people are important to us,” said Wilson Joseph better known as Lanmò San Jou (Death Without Days). “They’re the ones who got the country to where it’s at now. They owe Haiti a lot of money.”

The gang released one of the people kidnapped, the mother of a priest, on Thursday after receiving USD $50,000, according to local reports

Five priests, two nuns and two members of a priest’s family are still being held captive. Wilson said he will stop feeding them.
