Rapper Izolan, member of LAPEH party, was arrested along with Petion-Ville deputy candidate Jacques Vilsaint. Activist Andre Fadot claimed the arrests were baseless.

The arrests followed weeks of demonstrations against the preliminary election results widely considered fraudulent.

Izolan has been released but other LAPEH party members remain incarcerated.

There has been an atmosphere of increased repression, with police fighting many thousands of protestors.
