Trinidad PM Calls on Dominican Republic to “Immediately Restore Nationality”

“This, to my government, is unacceptable. Additionally, any commitment to naturalize those persons is at variance with established norms and principles whereby naturalization frameworks constitute a means for foreign nationals to acquire citizenship,” the Trinidad Prime Minister wrote. “This is not applicable in this instance. Accordingly, I call on you to take steps to restore immediately Dominican nationality to those who have been denationalized.”

Persad-Bissessar is the current Chair of CARICOM, which announced that it would suspend consideration of the Dominican Republic’s membership bid to the regional body in response to the court ruling. via “Immediately Restore Nationality”
