Activist Johnson Edouard, killed in Gonaïves, had not worked for "Haïti Progrès" for past three years

(RSF/IFEX) - The staff of the weekly newspaper "Haïti Progrès" have said that Johnson Edouard, who was killed on the night of 12 April 2007 in the north-western city of Gonaïves, had not worked for the newspaper for about three years. The theory that he was murdered in connection with his political activism therefore seems more likely. Edouard was the regional representative of Fanmi Lavalas, former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's party.
