Haitian banker denies Canadian allegation of involvement in gang violence

The vice president of Haiti's largest bank, UNIBANK, has denied involvement in any criminal or gang activity after Canada imposed sanctions on him and two other prominent business executives.
 
Canada's Foreign Affairs Minister, Mélanie Joly, announced the sanctions on Carl Braun as well as Marc Antoine Acra, the former adviser to former prime minister Laurent Lamothe, and Jean-Marie Vorbe, the chief executive officer of a company in the energy sector.
 
Canada said it has reason to believe the three individuals are fueling the violence and instability in Haiti through corruption and other criminal acts and by enabling the illegal activities of armed gangs that terrorise the population and threaten peace and security in Haiti.
