During a press conference on Sunday, the PNH director showed a photograph taken at a hotel in the Dominican Republic where the mercenaries planned the attack. The photograph shows Christian Sanon, Antonio Intriago, James Solages, Walter Veintemilla, and former Senator Joel Joseph, against whom there is an arrest warrant for murder, attempted murder, and armed robbery.
Currently, Solanges is accused of having coordinated the hiring of mercenaries with the Florida-based company CTU Security, which is owned by Intriago. The operation was allegedly financed by Veintemilla's consulting firm Worldwide Capital Lending Group.
The HNP also issued arrest warrants against lawyer Joseph Badio, businessman Rodolph Jaar, and Gordon Phenil Desir, who were involved in renting vehicles, coordinating meetings with the mercenaries, paying for equipment, and other logistical tasks.
