Canada sanctions ex-Haiti president and prime ministers

Canada has expanded its economic sanctions freezing the Canadian assets of Haitian political elites to include former president Michel Martelly and former prime ministers Laurent Lamothe and Jean-Henry Céant.

Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly accused the trio this weekend of helping gangs undermine Haiti's current government and called on international partners to follow Canada's lead.

She says the goal is to make sure that these people that are profiting from the violence, and are part of a corrupted system, are held accountable
