Haiti to receive UN help to go after Jean-Claude Duvalier for crimes committed

The Human Rights Office, a branch of the United Nations, has decided to help the Haitian government prosecute former Haitian Dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier for the killings and tortures that took place under his government. The "Haitian Joudalist" was also informed that there are no statute of limitation for important human rights violations such as torture, rape and enforced disappearance. The Human Rights Office said that people who were victimized by the Jean-Claude Duvalier regime deserves justice.


Does anyone remember this Haitian proverb: "Bay kou bliye, pote mak sonje"

Translated into English: "He who gives the blow forgets; he who carries the scar remembers."

Did Jean-Claude Duvalier really think about all these possibilities before deciding to go back home?
