PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – The former President of the National Assembly called the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to investigate the banana plantation of the ruling party candidate for president, Jovenel Moïse.
Former Senate President, Simon Desras, said an adjacent airplane strip to the Agritrans S.A. plantation would be serving as an entry port for cocaine.
Desras, also a candidate for president who is now backing calls for an independent investigation into election results, was speaking on Radio Vision 2000 on Friday morning.
He said that workers on the plantation had told him that planes would land, packages would be unloaded into vehicles. These packages would then leave the plantation and the plane would leave also.
Desras recalled that Jovenel Moïse had accompanied former hotelier and charged narco trafficker, Evinx Daniel, in a meeting with parliamentarians in May 2011.
The hotelier was arrested in September 2013 when he was found in possession of 23 packages of marijuana. Two Jamaicans were arrested in connection to this case but Daniel was released within 24 hours.
The arresting commissioner was reprimanded by the Martelly regime and two weeks later, President Michel Martelly, an admitted crack user, had spent the night at his home.
Evinx Daniel disappeared in January 2014 and is feared dead. He was questioned by DEA agents days before his disappearance on December 20, 2013.
