MIAMI (WSVN) - The First Lady of Haiti has given an update on her condition a week after she and her husband, Haiti’s President Jovenel Moïse, were ambushed in their home.
Martine Moïse tweeted a picture on Wednesday night of her lying in a hospital bed at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Her right arm could be seen covered in bandages in the picture.
She thanked the team at the hospital for their care writing, “Thank you for the team of guardian angels who helped me through this terrible time. With your gentle touch, kindness and care, I was able to hold on. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
She and her husband were shot at their home, and the president did not survive.
The wounded Moïse was flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital for surgery.
The investigation into who was behind the assassination continues.
On the island, Haiti’s police chief accused a Venezuelan businessman, who owns CTU Security in Doral, of being a part of the assassination plot.
On Wednesday, the chief of police said the owner of the company traveled to Haiti numerous times leading up to the attack.
Colombia’s national police also said CTU Security bought 19 plane tickets from Bogotá to the Dominican Republic for those suspected Colombian gunmen.
This latest development comes as the head of security at the presidential residence was taken into custody.
Officials announced they are also looking for former Haitian Senator John Joel Joseph. He is believed to be armed and dangerous.
“We ask everyone to inform us about these people so that the case is completed and passed on to the Ministry of Justice,” said Léon Charles, Chief of Haitian Police.
In the meantime, Haiti received its first coronavirus vaccine doses from the United States.
In the shipment, 500,000 doses were delivered, as the country deals with a spike in cases.
7News has reached out to CTU Security several times but has not received a response.
