It was just after noon here at the Caribe Hotel where Jean-Claude Duvalier emerged from the third floor hotel room where he has been staying. He came over to the railing at the edge and he waved to the crowd of people, mostly journalists here and camera crews, and flanked by police and S.W.A.T. Team members from the Haitian authorities.When he got down he was placed in a police vehicle and then the caravan of vehicles made their way down the hillside here and off to a place called the parquet, which is the Haitian court.The Preval government had said back in 2007, that if he ever returned, that they would charge him with embezzlement.
