The danger exists for sure, especially for the natives whose lives and liberty have, historically, been disrespected by one government after another!
The 2 Duvalier regimes, Papa Doc & Baby Doc, 1957-1986, were responsible for the arrests, tortures and deaths of thousands of innocent citizens!
So many disappeared, without a trace, mainly after being taken to Fort Dimanche, "Dungeon of Death?"
Maybe Baby Doc, and others from the Duvalier years, can share, with the ones who lost family members the location of their remains!
The least they can do is to allow us to give them proper burials!
Am I giving them the benefit of the doubt?
