DEA Confirms One of the Suspects in Haiti President’s Assassination Was Its Informant

At least one of the men arrested for the killing of Haitian President Jovenel Moise was the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) informant while several others may have had ties to the FBI, CNN reports, adding that following the assassination, “the suspect reached out to his contacts at the DEA,” which urged him to surrender to the local authorities.

The agency confirmed that “at times, one of the suspects detained by the Haitian authorities was a confidential source to the DEA,” but faced with reports that some assassins yelled “DEA” at the time of their attack, it officially denied that the attackers were acting on its behalf.

“The DEA and the US State Department provided information to the Haitian government that assisted in the surrender and arrest of the suspect and one other individual,” the agency confirmed with an unnamed law enforcement official clarifying later that the suspect was not an active DEA informant at the time of the assassination.

FBI, on the other hand, did not confirm or deny these reports, saying only that it uses “lawful sources to collect intelligence” as part of its investigations.
