Florence Laraque Abducted and then released with broken leg

Here is a picture of Florence Laraque who was abducted and then released with broken leg.

As per the report of Gary Desrosiers, the Inspector and spokesman of the National Police of Haiti, on the night of Wednesday, February 24th, 2016, Florence Laraque was released from captivity by an operation conducted at the wharf of Jérémie by a team consisting several units of the National Police of Haiti. Jérémie is a neighborhood located in the north of the capital. Florence is the wife of the Haitian comedian, Ashley Laraque who is also a member of the Executive Committee of the Fusion party of Social Democrats Haitians.

She was abducted by gunmen who were traveling on the Highway Brothers in Petion-while in a vehicle in the evening of Tuesday, February 23, 2016. Florence Laraque works as an interior decorator. On the evening of February 23, she was waiting outside her house for the gate to open when she was picked up by those gunmen who abducted her and flew in a blue pathfinder with license plate AA 147- 218. The victim was found by the police with a broken leg, probably caused by the abuse of her abductors. As per the released report, no arrest was made during the operation. After her release, Florence was taken to a hospital for medical assessment. Recently, regular news of kidnappings for ransom is coming from different sources. Most of the kidnappings were works of professional gangs while some were planned and executed by people already known to the victims. We might remember that Haiti had successfully curbed its kidnapping rate in the early 2014 since the United Nations provided anti-kidnapping support led by Robert Arce, a veteran American cop and law enforcement consultant. However, the Director General of the National Police of Haiti (PNH), Godson Orélus, has said, we will never allow the kidnapping to return to Haiti.
