Prosper Avril (born December 12, 1937) is a former president of Haiti, one of the most influential Haitian political figures of the last thirty years. He was born in Thomazeau village, near Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince. Avril briefly served as a member of Haiti's interim ruling body, the National Council of Government, following the departure of Jean-Claude Duvalier in 1986. He served as President from September 17, 1988 to March 10, 1990. He was arrested in 2001, shortly after Jean-Bertrand Aristide was elected President, for allegedly plotting against the state. He was kept in jail despite two court decisions ordering his release. Avril was freed when Aristide was ousted in February 2004.
