Duvalier law takes effect

a new law went into effect in Switzerland allowing the government to claim dictators’ funds deposited in their banks and believed to be of criminal origin. Duvalier allegedly has up to $7.3 million deposited there. The statute is dubbed the “Duvalier law.” U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay offered to assist in his prosecution, saying the human rights violations Duvalier allegedly committed have no statute of limitations and Haiti is obligated to prosecute.
