Member of the Collective against Impunity, Nicole and 25 other victims of the Duvalier dictatorship brought charges against the former president for life. On February 21, Duvalier (1971-1986) once again defied an order to appear before an appeals court in Port-au-Prince that is considering whether he can be criminally charged for human rights violations committed during his regime. Duvalier had refused to appear in the court twice before, on Jan. 31 and Feb. 7. Duvalier's defense attorney, Reynold Georges, said the former dictator's presence was unnecessary because he had filed an appeal with the Supreme Court. A three-judge appeals panel ordered the public prosecutor to escort Duvalier to court on February 28. AFP PHOTO / Thony BELIZAIRE (Photo credit should read THONY BELIZAIRE/AFP/Getty Images)
