Is Jean-Claude Duvalier in Haiti for financial reasons

Issue 1: A new Swiss law to be effective February 1, 2011 allows the Swiss authorities to return close to $7 million frozen in Jean-Claude Duvalier's account to the Haitian government.


Issue 2: On January 16, 2011, just 15 days before the law takes effect, former Haitian President Jean-Claude Duvalier is in Haiti, at the surprise of Many. The former Haitian dictator says he is in Haiti because he wants to help his country.

Issue 3: Jean-Claude Duvalier hired Bob Barr, a former US Congressman, as his advisor. He is also requested the services of two other American lawyers include: Ed Marger and Mike Puglise to help Jean-Claude to unlock frozen funds from Swiss Banks.

The purpose of all of that is it really to use the funds for the current situation in Haiti?

A quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson: "A man is usually more careful of his money than he is of his principles."
