Who is “Barbecue”, the leader of the powerful gang that has taken control in Haiti?

Since 2021, Haiti has been going through a new humanitarian crisis and intense wave of violence after the assassination of the president Jovenel Moïseallegedly, at the hands of a group of former Colombian soldiers hired to carry out the attack. Two days before his assassination, Moïse appointed the doctor Ariel Henry as prime minister and entrusted him with putting together a massive council that would be in charge of organizing the next elections in the neighboring Caribbean country.

Since then, Henry has failed to stabilize the nation whose capital, Port-au-Prince, is controlled, almost 80 percent, by armed gangs who have spread terror through campaigns of kidnappings and murders, and who frequently exchange gunfire with the police. national. These gangs attempted to take control of the Toussaint Louverture International Airport and invaded two of the main prisons, freeing over 5,000 inmates in the process.

Haitian authorities and governments of other countries blame one person in particular as the instigator of instability in Haiti, former police officer turned gang member Jimmy Cherizier, the leader of a coalition of gangs known as the G9. But who is Cherizier?
