Baby Doc Attorney Demands Appellate Judges be Dismissed

Jean-Claude Duvalier, known as Baby Doc, was a brutal dictator of Haiti from the late 1950s up until 1986, when he was run out of office. He succeeded his father, Francois Duvalier, who was even more heinous than his son. Baby Doc fled Haiti in exile and resided in Paris for nearly three decades before returning in 2011. He is now facing the possibility of being brought up on charges regarding human rights violations.

Did Haitian parliament negotiate out its relevance in new accord?

I guess anything can be negotiated. According to the new accord reached at El Rancho Hotel in Port-au-Prince on March 14, 2014, The Haitian Parliament, including the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies have exactly 10 Days to vote or amend the Electoral law. Now, knowing what we know about our beloved Haitian parliament, how likely is that to happen?

This is a new way to govern in Haiti, by accord.

Mezanmi, ki sa nou panse de sa? Eske se yon bon bagay pou accor-a bay Paleman seleman 10 jours pou yo passe Lwa, pandan ke nou konnin sa pap janm fet?

An appellate court in Haiti comprised of three-judge panel said on Thursday, February 20, 2014 that former dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier should face trial on human rights abuse.

It seems more certain than ever before that Jean-Claude Duvalier will be facing in the near future many of the victims of his private militia known as the Tonton Macoutes.
