On August 21, Haitian police wearing black masks and carrying heavy arms appeared in front of the home of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide as a Haitian judge issued calls to arrest him. Hundreds of people courageously surrounded the house to protect him.
On Friday morning, September 12th, at 1am, the Haitian government removed the security detail that has been guarding former President Aristide’s house since his return to Haiti in 2011.
