Police in Haiti have taken the security chief of the country’s assassinated president into custody.
Dimitri Hérard, the security chief for Haiti’s presidential palace, was taken into custody on Thursday, a police spokeswoman confirmed, according to The New York Times.
Hérard was told the decision to hold him “came from above,” CNN reported, citing one of his associates.
President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated at his private residence in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, last Wednesday.
Hérard was questioned at the Haitian Inspector General’s office on Wednesday and then transferred to a police station in Port-au-Prince, CNN reported, citing the associate.
It is not clear if Hérard had any involvement in the security of the private residence.
