'Baby Doc' Duvalier returns to Haiti

Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier, Haiti's former dictator, returned unexpectedly Sunday to the country after some 25 years in exile.

He arrived in the Haitian capital as the nation is grappling with a political crisis, sparked by fraud allegations in a presidential election. It was not immediately clear why the former leader returned.

Duvalier, wearing a dark suit and tie, greeted supporters at the busy Port-au-Prince airport. He had traveled with his wife.

The Duvalier family ruled Haiti for three decades starting in 1957, when Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier was elected president. He later declared himself president for life. Whe he died in 1971, he was succeeded by his 19-year-old son, Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier.

The younger Duvalier held onto power for 15 years before a revolt forced him to flee the country. He has been living in France

    wanna bet BabyDoc is there to try a political run? there will be some Haitians who, desperate to have SOMEONE fix this nation's enormous problems, will back an exiled dictator who escaped by the skin of his teeth 25 yrs ago. They blithely ignore his bloody regime and alleged crimes against humanity. I think the quicker this monster is arrested, the better off Haiti will be.

    I read all the above comments that was posted. I too feel that Duvalier would be a great help to Haiti. The people are tired! I cannot imagine the people living like that another day. Can you?? We can say what we want, we are not there to experience the pain these people are going through. I admire them for their courage and strenght. they need help and if Duvalier is "THE HELPER" then let him help. Beside he doesn't look like he will last too long anyway. I think he has return home to die.
