On Tuesday in Port-au-Prince, the government commissioner of the status of the federal prosecutor demanded that the judge bring charges against Henry.

It is alleged that the plaintiff also called Ariel Henry twice in the early hours of July 6, near his residence after Moyes was killed. Henry’s public prosecutor was fired within hours of requesting a judge to file a complaint.
