Jean-Claude was the son--and heir --of the also ruthless and corrupt Haitian dictator Frangois "Papa Doc" Duvalier (1957-1971, president for life since 1964), who started the dictatorial dynasty that came to an abrupt end when Bebe Doc was toppled by a popular uprising.
Victims of the younger Duvalier's dictatorship have said that, during his 15-year reign of repression, Bebe Doc was directly responsible for a number of cases of illegal arrests and extrajudicial executions.
