Colombian authorities announced Thursday they are investigating three more Colombians, including a former police officer, who are allegedly involved in the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise.

During a press conference, Director of the Colombian Police Jorge Luis Vargas said that apparently former military officers German Rivera and Duberney Capador knew more details of the plan to assassinate the Haitian president.

"We have three Colombian citizens who are being sought at the moment, who had been in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. We are in the process of fully identifying them," he said.

The police chief also said that the three fugitives indicated to the rest of the Colombian ex-military personnel that the mission was to arrest Moise.

"According to the information handled in Haiti, Capador and Rivera were the people who planned and organized the alleged arrest operation," Vargas said.

The Haitian president was assassinated on July 7 at his residence by a commando of mercenaries.
