Jean-Claude Duvalier- After his father Francois Duvalier passed away in 1971, Jean-Claude became president in his fathers place until 1986 when he was overthrown. He was a very wealthy man because of his father and made millions off of drug trade and selling the body parts of dead Haitians while the whole country suffered in poverty. When the army demanded his abdication, he fled with his family to France, leaving Haiti behind with an illiteratecy rate of 80%, 9/10 people unemployed, infant mortality rate of 33%, per capita income of less than $300, the lowest life expectancy in the Western Hemisphere at an age of 53 years old, and an insane population infected with diseases that have been iradicted in most other countries. In January 2011 he came back to Haiti after fleeing for so long in France and was almost immediately arrested by the Haitian police and was charged with corruption.
