Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier was charged with corruption, theft, misappropriation of funds and other alleged crimes committed during his 1971-1986 rule after the former Haitian dictator was hauled before a judge in Port-au Prince tonight.

"His fate is now in the hands of the investigating judge.

We have brought charges against him," Port-au-Prince chief prosecutor, Aristidas Auguste, told Reuters.

The charges must now be investigated by the judge who will decide whether a judicial case should go ahead.

Dozens of officers, including some in riot gear, had whisked him earlier from his hotel past a jeering and cheering crowd and into a 4X4 with tinted windows
