Port au Prince, Haiti – Prime Minister Dr Ariel Henry has described as “barbaric acts”, the murders of three police officers on Sunday by members of the “Timakak” gang during an ambush.

The General Directorate of the National Police of Haiti (PNH) in extending condolences to the families of the slain police officers has identified them as Pierre Paul Dorcely, Nicolas Robinson and Medèze Fortilien.

It said the officers from the Intervention Brigade, assigned to the Thomassin Sub-Commissioner, were “cowardly murdered” in Thomassin 32, a neighbourhood on the mountainside south of Pétion-Ville, where many upper-class citizens reside.

“Our police brothers have …once again, fallen under the murderous bullets of thugs without faith or law. We deplore these barbaric acts,” Prime Minister Henry said in a statement.

“To the families, to the brothers in arms of these valiant police victims, we send our sincere condolences and we assure them of our solidarity. We renew to the Haitian people our unshakable determination to do everything to achieve the creation of a climate of security and stability in the country which is too bruised and bereaved.

“We are not insensitive to this situation and we are working hard to find a lasting solution,” Henry added. (CMC)
