Statement by SVG Gov’t on assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse

It is with profound sadness that the government and people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines learnt of the assassination of Jovenel Moïse of the Republic of Haiti, a member-state of our Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

This senseless and cowardly act of unbridled violence has shocked and outraged many throughout the Caribbean Community and the world. In our Caribbean Community we settle political differences peacefully through democratic institutions; we do not use violence and thuggery which undermine democracy and the rule of law.

The Government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines condemns this abhorrent act and calls upon the relevant authorities in the sister CARICOM State to ensure that the matter is promptly investigated and that those responsible are brought to justice.

On behalf of the government and people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and on my own behalf, I convey sincere condolences to the family and friends of President Moïse and to the people of Haiti. I pray that God grants them all strength at this immensely difficult time. The government and people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines stand in solidarity with the people of Haiti in their grief.

The government and people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines reaffirm our commitment to ensuring that the Caribbean region remains a zone of peace and call for calm in the Republic of Haiti.

The people of Haiti are urged to refrain from vigilante justice and retaliatory aggression that can compromise the constitutional order in the Republic of Haiti.

  1. That speech don’t represent all vincentions,,we see and know what’s going on in Haiti,,that leader was a puppet government set up by USA that manipulate oppress and take Haiti wealth and leaves the natives very poor, also under the leader there was lots of kidnappings murder and disappearing of people,,there were protest for months people crying out for justice too much bloodshed,,all fall on def ear of the government,
    When people gets tired of an oppressed government that ignore it’s people,,this can be the outcome,,so let’s us stop pretending he was good for his people,,he was poison!,,and let that be a lesson to other Caribbean leaders!,,,wake up!

  2. The killing of this man is the direct result of his interfering with the police and justice system. Police and the judicial system had become totally corrupt. The people experienced political behaviour similar to what has been going on in SVG for the longest time and is currently manifesting in peoples protests to what they believe is a political interference in the police, legal and court system.
    Unlike Sparky I do not believe for one moment that the US was in any way involved as he states.
    I think it is the nasty human greed that eventually takes control of politicians minds and actions, nothing corrupts more than power. They start to believe they are untouchable and do anything they want to whatever and whoever they want.

  3. Saint Vincent needs a renewal of rule of law, equal rights, and justice for all. Many think that can only happen with the removal of Ralph Gonsalves and destructing the dynasty he has been building.
