Haiti to receive 5.8 from Switzerland on Jean-Claude Duvalier's behalf

The final process to return $5.8 million to Haiti is underway.


The assets of Jean-Claude Duvalier has been frozen in a Swiss bank since 1986
, collecting dusts. The Swiss government announced that the Federal Department of Finance (FDF) initiated forfeiture proceedings before the Federal Administrative Court (FAC) concerning the Duvalier assets frozen in Switzerland.

Frozen since 1986? I guess by now it is a hard rock.......

The "Haitian Joudalist" has learned that if everything goes according to plan, Switzerland may return up to $5.8 million to the Haitian Government

I am repeating it again: $5.8 million!

Don't you see anything wrong with this picture?

From 1986 to to 2011 no interest accumulated. Hummmmm.......

Like the swiss government said it was FROZEN


Do you think the money should be returned to the Haitian government?

What about any interest accumilated?

Do you think the money was literally "Frozen" in a Swiss bank?

first, is jonas one of those people?

second, either haiti or duvalier should sue the swiss bank for trying to steal the interest on that money.

Now after solving that problem, the treasury of the new cabinnet of haiti should seat with duvalier and deduct taxes that he owed the country when he was president.

we have to stop assuming that when a person become president of haiti he/she automatikly becomes a thief.
