All eyes on Haitian court tomorrow where Duvalier is ordered to appear | rabble.ca


Jean-Claude Duvalier has been ordered to appear before a judge in Port au Prince to answer to criminal charges of theft and embezzling of state funds. The order to appear was issued by a judge on February 7 following Duvalier’s failure to appear on that date. Duvalier’s lawyers said he was a no-show because it was the anniversary date of the tyrant’s overthrow 27 years ago and he was concerned for his security. The judge’s order to appear on Feb. 21 means Duvalier could be arrested if he does a repeat. | rabble.ca
