State Dept. comments on Baby Doc return to Haiti

January 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

The dust began to settle Monday on the surprise return of ousted dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier to Haiti as a Haitian journalist said she will bring charges to have him arrested. Michele Montas, a journalist and former spokeswoman to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, told CNN from Haiti that she planned to go to a public prosecutor to file an official complaint against Duvalier for his brutality during the 1971-1986 dictatorship. The US administration has officially remained silent about Duvalier’s return, but a statement from the State Department quoted by McClatchy newspapers indicated surprise and worry. “We are surprised at the timing of this visit, given the continuing turmoil surrounding the November 28, 2010, elections as well as the unpredictable impact of Duvalier’s return on Haiti’s political situation.” (monstersandcritics.com)
