“I need help, my life is in danger”. This would be the content of the last phone call from Haitian President Jovenel Moïse, before being killed on 7 July in his villa. According to what the “Miami Herald” reconstructs, in a few minutes the president first contacted the chief of police and then an officer. The first call came at 1:34 am: “They are shooting near the house, mobilize the agents”, the president told the police chief while, as reported by the neighbors, in Pelerin 5, where Moïse, his wife lived. Martine and two sons, uninterrupted automatic shots were heard.
Before the commando entered the bedroom of the president’s private residence opening fire and hitting him to death, Moïse, 53, reportedly made another call, this time to a tactically trained officer with the Haitian National Police. “Where are you?”, He would ask the man calling him by name. “I need your help now! My life is in danger. Come quickly, come and save my life.” However, before the phone call ended, the interlocutor, who asked to remain anonymous in an interview with the Herald, would have heard the sound of an assault rifle.
