Ousted Haitian President Jean-Claude Duvalier and his relatives pocketed nearly $100,000 in public funds each month he was in power, officials said. A seven-member commission, appointed last month by Haiti’s ruling civilian-military council, is reviewing the financial records of ministries and agencies under Duvalier, who fled the country Feb. 7. Banks have been asked to open their books to investigators tracing Duvalier’s wealth, estimated at between $200 million and $800 million. Duvalier still owes the National Bank of Credit $5.6 million, officials said.
