The Foreign Minister of the Republic, Roberto Álvarez, announced this Wednesday that the advisor of the Dominican embassy in Haiti, Carlitin Guillen Tatis, was released after spending several days kidnapped.
Álvarez shared this information through his Twitter account, in a message where he also assured that Guillen Tatis is in good health.
However, the official did not reveal who was responsible for the crime or under what circumstances the man was released.
“Fortunately, Carlitin Guillen Tatis, advisor to the Dominican embassy in Haiti, has been released safe and sound, after four days of kidnapping. We thank all those who actively participated in his release, ”wrote the chancellor.
Guillen Tatis was reported missing since the previous Friday by his relatives, who stated that the last they knew of the counselor was that he was traveling by road from Port-au-Prince to the Dominican Republic.
Two days later, the embassy of the Dominican Republic in Haiti urged the foreign ministry of that country to initiate an investigation for the release of the man.
In the aforementioned request, the Dominican ambassador in Port-au-Prince, Faruk Miguel Castillo, attached to the Haitian Foreign Ministry a communication delivered to the Central Directorate of the local Judicial Police, with the complaint about the kidnapping, and a screenshot of the last phone calls made on the telephone of Guillén Tatis.
