The main suspect in the assassination of Haitian President, Jovenel Moïse is expected to be deported from Jamaica to his home country Colombia by the end of the day on Monday January 3, 2022. 

That’s according to Court orders that instructed for the Colombian national and former military officer Mario Antonio Palacios Palacios to be deported before the end of the day.

Wayne Walker reports.


Attorney representing Palacios, Queens Counsel Carolyn Reid Cameron says the Court ordered his deportation on Friday December 31.

QC Reid Cameron says the Order is for Palacios to be deported from Jamaica by the end of Monday.

Meanwhile, QC Reid Cameron explained why the extradition request by Haiti in December was not honoured.

Queens Counsel Carolyn Reid Cameron speaking with Nationwide News.

Palacios has been in the custody of Jamaican law enforcement authorities since October last year.

He was listed as wanted by the International Criminal Police Organization, INTERPOL shortly before being arrested in Jamaica.

Palacios was held in Jamaica for illegal entry. He’s considered one of the most wanted men in Haiti. Haiti had reportedly requested that he be flagged by INTERPOL.

Haitian police believe he travelled with several former soldiers involved in the assassination of President Moïse on July 7 last  year. Palacios left Colombia for the Dominican Republic on Friday June 4 via El Dorado airport. 

He is believed to have been on a Avianca flight with other members of the commandos which executed the then Haitian President in July.
