Former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier was taken into custody Tuesday and transported to a courthouse where a hearing will determine whether he will be arrested.
Duvalier appeared from the hotel room where he has been holed up since his mysterious return to Haiti on Sunday. His hands free of handcuffs, he waived to a small crowd of supporters before heavily armed police escorted him away.
Duvalier's departure from the Karibe Hotel came after a morning of intense legal activity. A judge and chief prosecutor had entered the hotel to question Duvalier.FULL STORY
apparently he,s just been arrested in Haiti,lets hope this begin,s the process of what should have been done to him years ago.
He should be held accountable for his actions! This is a good first step...
That is great .I hope that Babby Doc arrest is beginning of the trial of Haitians theives and criminals such Rene preval, Jean Bertrand Aristide, Cedras, Namphy and friends.
Also, Baby Doc presence in Haiti sounds like a movie created By US, France and Canada to play and sleep hiatian people making them forget their real problems like Cholera, contruction and security.
My belief is that " Baby Doc" should not be charged, the fact is at the time He was young, and manipulated by a bunch of older corrupted guys in his administration. It is hard for him to control these manipulators, we all know how our Haitians people are; it is either or.
Now it is not the time, after all that tragedy that struck the Island where millions of peoples are dead, that is not going to bring them back .
Now "Baby doc" is back in good faith trying to help Haiti ; let him enjoy his country it's been so much that he missed out his country, don't you all think He risk his life to go in a country that he can be kill at?.. We are not God, No one is perfect, we all should get over it, and try to build a stronger ' Haiti" like it was in the past.
he should be trail and inprision for coruption and crime against humanity.
It is good that the justice system is intact in Haitian. Baby doc need some time out! And his bank account can provide relief to those harmed.
This is a throw off to the haitian people!
They do it everyday in america,I'm just shocked they would do something this obvious(baby doc returns)??
I just hope the people of haiti don't fall for the distraction,and put their sharpest minds into building their country up to something respectable!!
The real tragedy is that Augusto Pinochet of Chile was never prosecuted for any of his crimes although they were ten times worse than those of "Baby Doc"Duvalier of Haiti. Talk about a double standard!!!
I would like to see justice to be serve, not injustice. Most of you here want Duvalier to be prosecuted, but forget that he's been out for more than 25 years and that Haiti is worst than ever. All I' m saying, I understand that Duvalier has to pay for the crime, he has committed, but what about the actual regime and it predecessors? Duvalier was a dictator, but what about those that we died to get them to power and all they do is lying repeatly to us? All these people are as bad as Duvalier and need to be brought to Justice.
