MIAMI, May 24 (UPI) -- Former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier, better known as "Baby Doc," could receive up to $5.6 million from a Swiss bank account.

Swiss government officials said they may have no choice but to turn over the money to Duvalier, accused of stealing millions from Haitian state coffers during his reign, as his family set up a bank account in Liechtenstein.

The accounts were frozen for years while Haitian officials and activists argued that the former dictator's deposits were made with stolen money.
