Haiti - "Baby Doc" : Former President Duvalier placed under house arrest, his lawyer disputes
25/03/2011 13:46:36

Haiti -
Former President Jean-Claude Duvalier, admitted Wednesday at the hospital of Canapé Vert in Port-au-Prince, for health problems, has been placed under house arrest Thursday by the Haitian justice system, 24 hours after his admission to hospital "With restrictions on his movements and specific times to receive relatives and friends" has indicated Carvès Jean, the judge in charge of prosecutions against former President Duvalier.

Reynold Georges, the lawyer has dismissed as "waste" this assignment, criticizing the validity of the court order against his client, after finding that it was delivered in a hospital instead of the house of the Former President.

Me Reynold Georges is surprised the peace enjoyed by an another former President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide since his return and noted that, contrary to the latter, his client is "persecuted".

He announced that he was going to appeal quickly, of the decision of the judge Carvès Jean, to remove this assignment. He noted that so far, former President Duvalier had never known any restrictions on his movements "there is no law for it" and "this practice is illegal" he asserts. According to him, the Government Commissioner of Port-au-Prince, is trying to break the law just to please the President René Préval and the Minister of Justice Paul Denis.

Concerning the health condition of "Baby Doc", Enzo Alcindor, a friend of the Duvalier family, which was in the hospital, said that the physicians have expected additional tests but "It's not a cerebrovascular accident (CVA). This is not a heart attack. Thank God" However, this information was not be confirmed by Dr. Gérard Pierre, doctor of Jean-Claude Duvalier, who declined to comment on the health condition of his patient.
