After the payment of several ransoms, Pierre Richard Joseph, Director of APN in Cap-Haïtien, finally regained his freedom this Sunday. However, the situation remains concerning as the co-owner of Télé Pluriel, Pierre-Louis Opont, is still in the hands of his captors. His family, worried about his fragile health, has made numerous appeals for his release.
For over a month, the Vitelhomme gang had held Pierre Richard Joseph, the Director of APN, hostage in a series of tragic events that shook Cap-Haïtien. The kidnappers had demanded significant ransom payments for his liberation.
The joint efforts of local authorities and security forces have finally led to the release of Pierre Richard Joseph. The details of his return to freedom remain unclear, but it is known that intense negotiations were conducted to achieve this happy outcome. Joseph’s liberation is a relief for his family, friends, and all those who have followed this case with concern.
