Haiti: Return of Jean Claude Duvalier
Danto is president of the Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network. She just wrote the piece “Obama’s change in Haiti: The Return of Jean Claude Duvalier.”
Danto states that Duvalier, a past dictator of Haiti, could not have been able to return without the cooperation of the U.S. and France. She notes that meanwhile, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, who was democratically elected as president of Haiti, has not been able to return to Haiti.
