Fort Lauderdale man arrested in connection with Haitian President Moïse’s assassination

Jul 9, 2021

Solages’ LinkedIn profile shows he worked multiple jobs in South Florida. He wrote that he attended Florida Career College from 2015 to 2017. He worked as the CEO of a maintenance and repair company in addition to hospital and health care jobs. Advertisement Solages is also the president of a nonprofit organization with an office in North Lauderdale. FWA SA A JACMEL AVAN’s mission is “rebuilding Haiti,” according to its website. James Solages, of Fort Lauderdale, was among the six people arrested Thursday in connection with the assassination of Haiti President Jovenel Moïse. Solages' social media accounts depict him as a business owner, philanthropist and political advocate. (Website/jacmelfirst.org) He calls himself the chief commander of body guards for The Canadian Embassy in Haiti in his bio on the charity’s website and describes a lengthy history of volunteering with nonprofits in Haiti to help needy communities. Solages was born in Haiti and immigrated to the United States, according to his charity’s website. His nonprofit earned just over $11,000 in 2019, according to the organization’s Form 990. Attempts to reach members of the nonprofit’s Board of Directors were unsuccessful Thursday. Posts on a Twitter account appearing to be Solages’ show motivational quotes and photos of his charitable work with children. His account says he is from Jacmel, Haiti. In one of his last posts over a year ago, he bemoaned living “in a crazy time” with “no loyalty or no real genuine love.” Officials did not address a motive for the slaying, saying only that the attack, condemned by Haiti’s main opposition parties and the international community, was carried out by “a highly trained and heavily armed group.” A Haitian judge involved in the investigation said that Moïse was shot a dozen times and his office and bedroom were ransacked, according to the Haitian newspaper Le Nouvelliste. It quoted Judge Carl Henry Destin as saying investigators found 5.56 and 7.62 mm cartridges between the gatehouse and inside the house.

(AP Photo/Joseph Odelyn, File) (Joseph Odelyn/AP) Moïse’s daughter, Jomarlie Jovenel, hid in her brother’s bedroom during the attack, he said, and a maid and another worker were tied up by the attackers. Moïse’s wife was flown to South Florida for treatment of her injuries. Interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph, who assumed leadership of Haiti with the backing of police and the military, asked people to reopen businesses and go back to work as he ordered the reopening of the international airport. Seven other suspected assailants were killed in a gunfight with police, Mathias Pierre, Haiti’s minister of elections, told The Associated Press. The police take two detainees to the police station of Petion Ville in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Thursday, July 8, 2021. According to Police Chief Leon Charles, the two detained are suspects in the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse. (Joseph Odelyn/AP) Two suspects were discovered hiding in bushes in Port-au-Prince on Thursday by a crowd, some of whom grabbed the men by their shirts and pants, pushing them and occasionally slapping them. Advertisement Police arrived shortly afterward to arrest the men, who were sweating heavily and wearing clothes that seemed to be smeared with mud, an Associated Press journalist at the scene said. Officers placed them in the back of a pickup truck and drove away as the crowd ran after them to the nearby police station.

Once there, some in the crowd chanted: “They killed the president! Give them to us. We’re going to burn them!” Haiti had grown increasingly unstable under Moïse, who had been ruling by decree for more than a year and faced violent protests as critics accused him of trying to amass more power while the opposition demanded he step down. Latest Fort Lauderdale News Moïse had faced large protests in recent months that turned violent as opposition leaders and their supporters rejected his plans to hold a constitutional referendum with proposals that would strengthen the presidency. South Florida is home to the largest concentration of Haitians in the United States, according to data from the Migration Policy Institute. From 2014 to 2018, Florida was one of two states that were home to nearly 70% of Haitians, with Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties having the greatest number of Haitians. In Broward County alone, Haitian is the second most-common language for non-English speakers. Haiti was the most common birthplace for foreign-born residents in Florida, second only to Cuba, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Information from the Associated Press was used in this report. Advertisement
