Newly appointed Haiti culture minister dies

The office of President Michel Martelly said in a statement that Henriquez died of a brain hemorrhage on Friday while in Ottawa



Port-au-Prince: Former journalist and newly-appointed Haitian culture minister Choiseul Henriquez died while in Canada. He was 51.

The office of President Michel Martelly said in a statement on Saturday night that Henriquez died of a brain hemorrhage on Friday while in Ottawa. It said he had suffered from diabetes and hypertension.

Henriquez was tapped to serve as minister of culture and communication in October, but was never sworn in because of his health problems, the privately owned station Radio Kiskeya said.
He served as a press secretary during the first term of two-time President Rene Preval, Martelly`s predecessor. Henriquez had also worked as a journalist.
