Haiti’s first lady says slain President was “betrayed”

Martine Moise affirmed that "the birds of prey" that killed her husband last July 7 "are still running in the streets. They are not even hiding. They are there watching and listening to us."

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Haiti's first lady, Martine Moise, called Friday for justice for the country's assassinated president, Jovenel Moise, who, she assured, "was abandoned and betrayed."

"You were abandoned and betrayed. Your assassination exposed (the) ugliness and cowardice," Martine said at the civil ceremony in honor of Moise held in Cap-Haitien, in the north of the impoverished Caribbean country, where he will be buried this Friday.

The woman said that Moise's "greatest sin" was "to love his country. Defending the weakest against the greed of others."
