Haiti President defiant amid deadly protests and calls for his resignation
February 16, 2019
(CNN)Haitian President Jovenel Moise has rejected calls for his resignation and promised unspecified economic measures after more than a week of deadly anti-government protests.
His administration rocked by soaring inflation and accusations of corruption, Moise said he will not allow the country to fall into the hands of criminals and urged dialogue to end a recent wave of violent demonstrations in the capital of Port-au-Prince.
Moise’s stance came as the United States issued a “Do not travel” advisory to the island and Canada made plans to evacuate more than 100 of its citizens from a resort in Haiti.
