BREAKING NEWS:  Jean-Claude, Baby Doc, Duvalier Arrested in Haiti (VIDEO)

As everyone is trying to figure how and why former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier returned to his homeland, officials are visiting him in his post hotel room.

Duvalier, returned to Haiti some 25 years later, after being in exile in France.  Baby Doc arrived over the weekend right when a Presidential election runoff was expected and then cancelled.

Regardless of his motive he remains despised by many for his human rights abuses that included the killing and torture of thousands, according to Human Rights Watch.

More than 20 police officers went to the Karibe Hotel where he is staying along with a judge and prosecutor.  Media was barred from entering.  A helicopter could be heard loudly overhead and United Nations officials were at the scene.
