Lawyer: Duvalier’s 25 years in exile won’t take back pain from Haitians

Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier, the brutal leader of Haiti until his oust in 1986, has returned to Haiti to face charges of fraud and political violence, but he’s claiming he can’t stand trial because of medical distress.

Host Jamila Bey spoke with Brian Concannon, Jr., human rights lawyer and director of the Institute for Justice & Democracy, to consider how Duvalier might be brought to justice.
