Join IJDH’s staff attorney, Nicole Phillips, for a live teleconference from Port-au-Prince on Thursday, March 7, with an update from the Duvalier hearings.

No one thought former dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier, who was in exile for 25 years, would face criminal charges for fraud and political violence.  But under court order, Duvalier testified last week before dozens of journalists and victims in a packed court room of Haiti’s Court of Appeals.

The court reconvenes March 7 to hear testimony from Duvalier’s victims about the human rights abuses such as torture and false imprisonment they suffered at the hands of the government.

Nicole will be talking about the hearing and other recent developments in the case.  Come with your questions for the question and answer section.

Date: Thursday, March 7, 5-6 pm ET (2-3 pm PT)
Conference call number:  641 715 3200 code 98027#
