Jean-Claude Duvalier (nicknamed Bébé Doc or Baby Doc) (born July 3, 1951) succeeded his father, Papa Doc Duvalier as the dictator of Haiti from his father's death in 1971 until his overthrow by a popular uprising in 1986. He married Michèle Bennet.

Any company would be crazy NOT to take him on. Mr Galliano is noihtng short of pure genius. The small group of people clearly took advantage of the situation whilst he was under the influence, he voiced his opinion and they continued to provoke him. If it wasn't Mr Galliano, no one would have cared less!!!! These people need to get a life one word ..KARMA!!!! Any company would be crazy NOT to take him on.

Tortuga freeportEdit

In 1971, shortly before the death of "Papa Doc" Duvalier, Texas entrepreneur Don Pierson entered into a 99-years contract to develop a freeport on the island of Tortuga. Following the death of his father and upon learning of a new multimillion dollar contract between the Freeport and Gulf Oil Corporation, Jean-Claude Duvalier expropriated the entire venture in 1974, causing it to collapse.

Political and economic repressionEdit

He held on to power until February 7, 1986 when, in response to three months of protest against the government's political and economic repression, fearing prosecution he fled the country and settled in France.

Exile and announced returnEdit

Following the ouster of the elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide in February 2004, Duvalier announced his intention to return to Haiti.
