MIRAMAR, Fla. – A somber ceremony took place in Haiti Thursday as people came together to pay tribute to the late President Jovenel Moise with another planned in Miami’s Little Haiti in the evening.
The memorials took place a day before the president’s funeral. It’s been more than two weeks since Moise was assassinated at his home. His wife was also injured and was brought to South Florida for treatment. At least 26 people, some with connections to South Florida, have been arrested in connection with the plot.
And now, we are learning that a Weston mortgage broker and insurance agent who also makes loans is under scrutiny for his role in possibly funding the operation to kill Haiti’s president.
Walter Veintemilla, the president of Worldwide Capital Lending Group, Worldwide Mortgage Lending Group, WWIDG, Ultimate Insurance Group, may have funded those that played a part in the assassination. Haitian authorities contend that the money for the assassination plot flowed through Veintemilla and his Miramar-based company.
