Haitian opposition leader hired Washington DC lobbyist two days before president's assassination and is now set to be questioned by cops over the murder

The leader of Haiti's opposition hired a Washington DC lobbyist two days before the island's president was assassinated - and is now due to be questioned by cops in connection with the murder.

Pierre Reginald Boulos signed up Art Estopinan, a former chief of staff to former Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), to push his interests on Capitol Hill on Monday - some 48 hours before President Jovenel Moïse was killed by hitmen during a dawn raid on his house.

Boulos - leader of the MTVAyiti party - is a controversial figure who, in the aftermath of a 2004 coup, oversaw the import of weapons into the country so they could be distributed to the Haitian National Police, according to a 2005 US diplomatic cable exposed by WikiLeaks.
