Quebec man charged with terrorism for alleged plan to overthrow Haitian government | CBC News


A Lévis, Que., man is facing terrorism charges after RCMP say he allegedly planned a terrorist act to overthrow the Haitian government of Jovenel Moïse.

Gérald Nicolas, 51, took “concrete actions,” including travelling to Haiti to coordinate a group of individuals whose intention was to take part in a coup against the established authority, RCMP said in a news release Thursday.

Nicolas faces three charges including leaving Canada to facilitate a terrorist activity, facilitating a terrorist activity and providing property for terrorist purposes. 

RCMP say the charges stem from an Integrated National Security Enforcement Team investigation which began after an exchange of information from the local police service in Lévis.

The investigation, which began in July 2021, revealed Nicolas allegedly planned to stage an armed revolution in Haiti and ultimately seize power.

This investigation is unrelated to the July 2021 assassination of Jovenel Moïse, says the RCMP.

Nicolas is expected to appear in court in Quebec City on Dec. 1.
