The protesters want to send the President to resign and to investigate the fate of funds received from the subsidized oil deliveries from Venezuela.

During the protests against the current government in Haiti, two people died and four were injured. On 10 June, said the press-Secretary of police Michael-ange Jones, writes AP.

“As a result of the shooting two people were killed and four more got wounds”, – he said.

The police said that one police officer was wounded thrown a stone at him. It also reported the arrest of 12 protesters.

Recall, June 9 thousands of people came out to protest in Haiti, demanding the resignation of President Jovenes Moise. Rallies were held in many cities, such as Jacmel, cap Haitien, Saint Marc and gonaïves.

Protesters burned tires and threw the police with stones and blocked the road. Militiamen protected the presidential Palace barricades.

Police used tear gas against the demonstrators when they tried to break into the residence of the President.

The protesters demanded to investigate where they sent the funds obtained through subsidized oil deliveries from Venezuela under the Petrocaribe program.

The economic crisis in Venezuela has led to a sharp reduction in oil supplies and has complicated the production of electricity in Haiti. Many Haitians now have electricity only a few hours a day.

Earlier anti-presidential rallies in Haiti occurred in February of this year. Then the citizens of the country accused the President of failing to deal with corruption and involvement in high-profile corruption scandals. During the riots killed seven people.
