Rodolphe Jaar, a Haitian-Chilean national, pleaded guilty Friday in Miami to “

material support

” for the commando that assassinated Haitian President Jovenel Moïse at his residence in 2021, according to court documents.

The 50-year-old admitted to having provided "

material support and resources

" knowing that it would be used to kidnap and kill the leader of this impoverished Caribbean country, according to his plea-guilty.

He is the first to admit his guilt among the 11 individuals detained in the United States and accused of planning the assassination from Miami, Florida.

Jovenel Moïse was killed in July 2021 by a commando of Colombian mercenaries in his private residence in Port-au-Prince without his bodyguards intervening.

According to the prosecution, Rodolphe Jaar had lodged and armed the members of the commando.

He was presented in January 2022 in court in Miami, after his arrest in the Dominican Republic.

Florida prosecutor Markenzy Lapointe announced at a press conference in Miami on February 15 the arrest of four other suspects, including Venezuelan Antonio Intriago and Colombian Arcangel Pretel Ortiz.

The American investigation revealed that these two men, at the head of the CTU security company in Miami, had planned to kidnap Jovenel Moïse to replace him with an American-Haitian, Christian Sanon.
