Haiti: 'You cannot kill the truth': The case against Jean-Claude Duvalier
After 25 years in exile, former dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier returned to Haiti in January 2011. Within days, survivors of serious human rights violations and families of victims of his regime filed complaints of such abuses between 1971 and 1986. An investigation was opened and Jean-Claude Duvalier was indicted for crimes against humanity. This report makes public the testimonies and other evidence gathered by Amnesty International during that time, demonstrating that these violations were widespread and systematic.
