Today 22nd January 2011 from CNN.

(CNN) — The human rights group Amnesty International said Friday that Haitian authorities are launching a probe into alleged crimes against humanity committed during the 15-year rule of former dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier.

Amnesty International researcher Gerardo Ducos gave Haitian authorities 100 documents that it says detail cases of detention without trial, systematic torture, disappearances and extrajudicial killings that took place in Haiti between 1971 and 1986…..

What are your views? Should Duvalier be investigated and prosecuted for his alleged human rights abuses? Is there a lesson here for Dominican politicians?
