TCI Gov’t puts Haiti’s ARIEL HENRY on STOPLIST

Ariel Henri, Haiti’s caretaker Prime Minister, has been added to the Turks and Caicos’ Stop List.

An official March 13 notice stamped by the Immigration Director and distributed to all of the Turks and Caicos’ major travel partners confirmed the action.

Also listed as recipients are HE The Governor; Commissioner of Police; Labor Commissioner; Deputy Director of Immigration; Collector of Customs; Manager of American Airline; Manager of InterCaribbean Airways; Manager of Marco Travel; Manager of T&CTravel; Manager of Provo Travel; Caicos Express; O.I.C North Caicos; O.I.C. South Caicos and the Secretary of the Immigration Board.

Contacts outside the Turks and Caicos had spoken to Magnetic Media revealing that Henry was trying to find safe haven in the Islands.

Wednesday night, Magnetic Media was contacted by a prominent member of the local Haitian community who said he was fielding inquiries about whether the PM had arrived.

There checks however found that he had not, because the TCI Government denied him refuge, that insider confirmation coming hours before the official document was shared with our news organization.

The request, if it had been accepted, would have put him in the Turks and Caicos TODAY March 14.

Now on his way out of office having agreed to resign once a transitional government is in place, Henry has in the past been threatened by Haitian coalition gang boss Jimmy Chérizier calling on him to leave the post of Prime Minister.

Dr Ariel Henry has been stranded in Puerto Rico since last week when gangs tried to hijack the airport in Port Au Prince, purposefully denying Henry entry back home. The attempt failed, as gangs were held off by the military, but it spooked air carriers enough that many suspended operations into and out of Haiti.
