Newsline: Dominican Republic says diplomat kidnapped in Haiti released

The foreign minister of the Dominican Republic has said that a diplomat kidnapped in Haiti in late April has been released. On Wednesday, Roberto Alvarez tweeted that Carlitin Guillen Tatis, an adviser to the country’s embassy in April, had been released “safe and sound” following “four days of kidnapping”. “We thank everyone who actively participated in his release,” Alvarez wrote without giving further details. (https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2022/5/4/dominican-republic-says-diplomat-kidnapped-in-haiti-released) The incident occurred as Haiti has seen an uptick in violence and kidnappings as powerful gangs jockey for more control in the country amid a political power vacuum left in the wake of the assassination of President Jovenel Moise in July 2021.
