Luc Desir, chief of Secret Police under Francois Duvalier

Here is a picture of Luc Désir who was chief of Francois Duvalier's Secret Police.

After the fall of Duvalier, Luc Désir was brought to Haitian justice. He was charged for his crimes such as torture and killings and sentenced to life in prison. However, under President Prosper Avril, Luc Désir and 13 other people who had been convicted were given a reduced sentence. And to finish the entire ordeal, when General Raoul Cedras came into power, Luc Desir was released from prison
