Journalist Reporting on Government Corruption Was Assassinated in Haiti

Radio journalist Rospide Pétion was assassinated late Monday. He reported on corruption allegations against the President of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, and his administration.

An unidentified gunman shot journalist Rospide Pétion, 45, as he drove home in a car owned by Radio Sans Fin.

“The press is for everyone. To inform everyone. In all kinds of situations,” the Haitian media organizations said in a statement.

Monday’s shooting came amid days of widespread protests calling for Moïse to resign.
