David Burt, the Premier, has sent condolences to the people of Haiti following the assassination of the nation’s president Jovenel Moise.

Mr Moise was killed after gunmen stormed his home in the Haiti capital of Port-au-Prince today.

His wife Martine Moise was injured in the attack.

The Premier said: “On behalf of the Government of Bermuda, I extend sincerest condolences to the people of Haiti and to the family of president Jovenel Moise who was killed in the early hours of this morning.

“We also pray for the recovery of the First Lady, Martine Moise, who was injured during the attack which claimed the life of president Moise.

“We continue to hope for peace and stability in Haiti. We also pray for the safety of our brothers and sisters throughout the country during this difficult time.

“Haiti is a proud nation, steeped in rich history. It is the oldest Black republic in the world and a fellow member of Caricom alongside Bermuda.

“The Government and people of Bermuda are here to support the people of Haiti in any way that we can.”
