Haiti crisis deepens after prime minister sacks prosecutor
Al Jazeera, 15 Sep 2021
Haiti's prime minister has sacked the chief prosecutor - after he asked a judge to charge the premier as a suspect in the murder of President Jovenel Moise.
The chief prosecutor had also asked immigration agents to bar Ariel Henry from leaving the country.
President Moise was assassinated in July - and court documents say the prime minister was called twice in the hours after his death by one of the main suspects.
The calls at about 4am local time lasted seven minutes. Prime Minister Henry has not commented.
