Members of a criminal group kidnapped Carlos Guillen Tatis, an adviser to the Dominican Embassy in Haiti, in the suburbs of the capital of the republic, Port-au-Prince. This was reported by El Día newspaper with reference to police data.
According to the authorities, the diplomat was kidnapped by members of the local 400 Mawozo gang, who, according to El Día, abducted 17 American missionaries last year, for which they demanded a ransom of $1 million.
This time, according to a source in intelligence, the kidnappers demanded a ransom of $500,000.
The Dominican government, through its embassy in Port-au-Prince, demanded from the Haitian Ministry of Foreign Affairs that the authorities of this country immediately investigate and achieve the release of Carlos Guillen Tatis “safe and sound”, writes El Día.
Last July, President Jovenel Moise was assassinated in Haiti. The attackers broke into his house and opened fire. His wife was injured. The security forces detained more than 20 suspects in the assassination of the head of state.
The assassination of the president took place amid protests and a difficult political environment. After the incident, the country's authorities asked the United States to send in a military contingent to protect infrastructure from protesters. United States President Joe Biden then announced that he would send only a limited number of Marines to protect the American embassy.
