Was Jean-Claude Duvalier as Murderous as Francois?
Ex-dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier, who died of a heart attack, came to power after his father Francois' death. Jean-Claude was an oppressive ruler like Francois, which led to Jean-Claude's overthrow in 1986.
He lived in France for the next 25 years, wanting to return to Haiti. Finally President Preval gave his approval, but Jean-Claude would have to face justice for his crimes against humanity. He returned in 2011 and appeared in court, but there was not enough of a case against him.
