According to information from Merlyne Pierre-Louis, Sport Passion Info coordinator, Haitian international referee Carl-Henry Elie was apprehended by unidentified armed men around 6 p.m. at Petite Place Cazeau.

At the time of the incident, the referee was outside Sainte-Claire Park. According to the testimonies of several local residents, he was alongside an alleged offender, who is actively sought by the police.

Indeed, the armed individuals who apprehended Carl-Henry Elie were not dressed in the uniforms of the Haitian National Police; their car does not have any insignia linked to the PNH. The individuals’ car was identified by the gray Suzuki brand.

However, recent information confirms that he was indeed arrested by the Haitian national police. After being clearly identified by the police, the Haitian international referee, Carl-Henry Elie, immediately regained his freedom. A sigh of relief for the world of Haitian football and CONCACAF.
