COMM: Here lies Dr. Francois Duvalier known as Papa Doc the iron-fisted autocrat who was President of Haiti for 14 fiery years
Papa Doc is dead and those who feared and hated him say his spirit still live in the National Palace in Prot-au-Prince..
lives in the old man's successor and son..
Nowadays they fire for Jean-Claude Duvalier
at the age of 24
Haiti's 9th President.....Last month he began the 6th year of that uncertain term.....applauded and supported..
There was his mother Simone Duvaleir...
..to her right were his older sister Marie Denise and Nicole
Some of Duvaliers critics say that the mother really runs Haiti...
COMM: "That doesn't mean.....quotes the old man's words from a little red book.....
French Speech Translated over in ENG: "We have eliminated political and legal inequality, we have overthrown reactionary conservatism, it is necessary now to move toward the elimination of economic inequality..
COMM:"For most of his first 5 years.... played the dutiful son....beginning to let the people know that he & not his father is now the President
"Some things remain the same - wherever the President goes there is massive security.....
"....the National Assembly receive young Duvalier to hear his annual message..
....even in the House of the National legislature Duvaleir is protected...
"other members of the palace guard
...and lined up behind the podium..
"....a new unit called the leopards ....trained by former U.S. marines.."
"In this speech Duvalier declared that under his leadership and his policy Haiti would move ahead in an economic revolution."
COMM:"He's trying to lay the ground-work to relieve the country's desperate poverty...still the worst in the Western himshere....
Duvalier spoke to a reorganised Cabinet.....he'd fired 10 of his 17 Ministers....
...the Cabinet was told be more efficient, more dynamic......
TRANSLATION OF FRENCH OVER NATSOF: "Personally I think that the most important problem in Haiti is the following - a question of training and mentality.....
it will take a certain amount of time .....I hope between 10 & 15 years..
COMM:"This is one of the seeds he's planting.....in Francois's day Haitians rarely volunteered to improve their country...but these young Haitians college students and street urchins have promised to raise and plant 100,000 trees by July 3rd, Jean-Claude Duvaliers birthday
"...he's using Presidential prestige to prod haitians into helping themselves"
...and another change - Francosi Duvalier seldom left the palace.. young Duvalier is beginning to move our where Haitians can see him....what they see is a big man in a black tail coat..solemn....
The people are kept at a safe respectful distance..
...in private he can be warm and friendly ..... now he says he likes the job..
Translation of Duvalier's French SOF:"I thing that it's very uplifting and exciting task...
to the Haitian people more decent living conditions..
"Comm: 'a very exciting task'...it sounds like a father's advice taken to heart.....Jean-Claude Duvalier is coming of age.....Richard Hunt N.B.C. News..."
