As soon as the news of the the return of Jean-Claude Duvalier was known, Michaëlle Jean, UNESCO Special Envoy for Haiti, strongly reacts "Twenty-five years of comfortable exile in impunity be enough to make Haitians forget the horrors, the suffering, the injustice as well as the human and economic cost of decades of Duvalierist dictatorship ? Did he not accountable ? How can he return to Haiti without being worried, as a citizen unclean ?", she asked.
