Haiti: Despite death of former President, UN urges continued probes into alleged abuses
09 October, 2014   COLORS OF INDIA NEWS AND MEDIA SERVICES






New York, Oct 8 (RDI IBNS) It is “essential” that legal proceedings and investigations against individuals associated with former Haitian President Jean-Claude Duvalier continue despite the former leader’s recent passing, the United Nations human rights office urged on Tuesday .

Serious human rights violations, including torture, rape, and extrajudicial killings, dating to the period spanning 1971 to 1986 the years when Duvalier, also known as Baby Doc, was in power have been extensively documented by Haitian and international human rights groups. Earlier this year, Haitis Court of Appeals reversed a January 2012 decision that stated that the former leader could not be charged with crimes against humanity which occurred during his reign because the statute of limitations had expired. At a press briefing held in Geneva, a spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) noted that while all the crimes were obviously not committed by Duvalier himself, it was imperative that the perpetrators of all abuses be brought to trial. It is the right of the Haitian people to obtain accountability for past violations of their human rights and the duty of mankind to remember, establish the truth and ensure justice for the victims, OHCHR spokesperson Rupert Colville told reporters. After years living in exile, Jean-Claude Duvaliers return to Haiti in 2011 spurred victims and civil society organizations to seek justice for the abuses committed during his 15 years in office. Duvalier died on 4 October of a reported heart attack. He was 63.
