According to people's report, Jn Claude was brought to the police station to answer about the purpose of his presence in Haiti.

He must have denied any political ambition or involvement because he went back without police escort to his hotel room.

Same source speculates that he had expressed the desire to die on his homeland.

Other speculation assert that since he is ill and feels his end near. To avoid the millions which belonged to his mother from being misused.

I believe that everyone including jean Claude is entitle to a second chance and to live his life and finish his days in his homeland.

No one has done better than him since he left and went into exile so I am convinced with his world knowledge and the law degree he would be a much stronger Leader to lead Haiti out of its funk and I do believe 5 Years from today he will seek the office and will win in a

Haitiens et haitiennes, partout ou on est, je voudrais que vous m'écoutiez un moment:j'ai à peu prés l'âge de jean-claude duvalier je vivais les deux régimes pére et fils.j'écoutais des gens parler de leur sort, je voyais avec mes propres yeux les abus commis par les deux contre les pauvres haitiens et haitiennes malgré tout j'étais un petit gamin.cela me brule au coeur aujourd'hui de voir des gens qui accueillent et acclament à Duvalier;pauvres gens!C'est à cause de l'ignorance social et politique de la majorité des haitiens et haitiennes que haiti n'a jamais eu ce qu'elle mérite.tous ceux et celles là qui veulent aujourd'hui encore à jean-Claude:je dirais qu'ils ne devraient pas etre

I truly think that they are playing game with haitian people.

I have never been a fan of the Duvaliers.

However, as a haitian citizen, he has the right to return to his country whenever.

I also think it's time for the haitian government to be smart and mindful.

I dont care if it is Preval or the Police who ordered the arrest, Its not about how worst the country become after him. And it doesn't matter how long he've been away, if there is any accusation for him he should face it. The problem is who is behind that arrest?

We should know that no one in Haiti act on it's own, they have to receive some order from the "blanc" We need to find out who is manipulate our leaders and do something about it. Ask yourself the question; why suddently after 25 years under France protection with the country fortune they brought him back. why now?

What, we see happening today, will serve as a reflection to everyone fullfilling a public function.

No one is above the law. But, we (Haitians) need to learn how to forgive/forget, so Haiti's sons/daughters can help rebuilt the
