A Haitian judge demanded Thursday that former dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier be brought to court to attend a hearing into whether to try him for crimes against humanity.

Judge Jean-Joseph Lebrun issued the order in the presence of lawyers acting for Duvalier and for alleged victims of his regime, after the former leader failed for a third time to attend a scheduled hearing into the case.
