Abstract (Document Summary)

A group of extreme leftists and Haitian exiles called a protest demonstration in the French capital against the government Saturday afternoon. One protester held up a hand-drawn cartoon that showed [Francois Mitterrand] giving [Jean-Claude Duvalier] a rose of welcome. "Shame to Mitterrand," the sign said. But with Duvalier so far away from Paris, the turnout of no more than 300 people was feeble.

Duvalier, 34, who was flown Friday to Grenoble in southeastern France in a U.S. Air Force C-141 transport plane, looked very tired when he finally arrived Friday night in the town of Talloires, on Lake Annecy near the Swiss border. On one occasion, he opened the shutters of his window overlooking the water.

It was not clear whether the French government would insist on Duvalier's remaining in Talloires for his entire stay or whether it would let him move on to one of his four homes. Duvalier owns a chateau outside Paris, a Paris suburban apartment, a villa in Nice and an apartment in Monte Carlo.
