Port-au-Prince, February 18th, 2013
This coming Thursday, February 21st, 2013, former dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier is expected before the Court of Appeals to answer questions concerning crimes committed during his regime. After the former dictator arrived in the country on January 16th, 2011, many victims of Duvalier’s regime came forward to bring suit for acts committed against them during the reign of the Tonton Macoutes (Duvalier’s secret police). But ever since Martelly took power, everyone notes that the long-fingered, former dictator has enjoyed substantial protection under the wings of the current administration.
