Haiti court established Duvalier could be charged for human rights abuse

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. This decision by the appellate court in Haiti eliminated a ruling by an investigative judge in 2012 that threw out the human rights charges against Duvalier on the grounds that the statute of limitations to bring such charges had expired.


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.

Eske nou panse Jan Claude kapab passe de twa jou nan przon?

Eske nap atann pou nou wue_ yon jijman spektakilè, denye cri?
