Palacios is an alleged member of the command accused of assassinating the Haitian president and was subject to a search and arrest warrant issued in July by the Haitian National Police.
Last Sunday, the Government of Jamaica confirmed that Palacios was going to be deported to Colombia on Monday because the Government of Haiti had not provided sufficient information about the Colombian’s connection to the assassination.
“The information provided did not link him to the murder and essentially indicated that he was a suspect in an attempted armed robbery, without any details,” said the Government of Jamaica.
The Miami Herald newspaper reported today that Palacios was arrested in Miami after arriving from Panama, based on sources close to the events, but it is not clear how the transfer was.
Of the group that allegedly perpetrated the attack, 18 former Colombian soldiers and 2 Haitian-Americans were arrested, while another 3 Colombians died in shootings with the Police.
The wife of the assassinated president, Martine Moise, who was injured in the attack and underwent surgery in the United States, denounced at her husband’s funeral that the country’s oligarchy is allegedly responsible for the crime.
