Port-au-Prince, Haiti (CNN) — Extraordinary drama unfolded Tuesday in Port-au-Prince as charges were filed against former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier, government sources told CNN.
The charges are related to financial corruption and may also include human rights violations, a source in the court told CNN.
A judge will have 30 days to investigate and decide whether the accusations merit moving forward with a case against Duvalier.
Earlier in the day, the former leader was taken into custody at his hotel and transported to a downtown courthouse for a hearing. After hours of questioning, Duvalier was allowed to return to his hotel.
