Medina: “We Do Not Accept” Threats to Dominican Republic’s Sovereignty


Medina said he was responding to statements made “by some CARICOM” countries that he said sought to paint the Dominican Republic as “racist, discriminatory and a violator of human rights.”

He said he did not accept that “anyone, either big nor small, could threaten the sovereignty of the Dominican Republic.”

The citizenship ruling made by the country’s Constitutional Court in September 2013, effectively stripped the citizenship of as many as several hundred thousand Dominicans of Haitian descent.

The ruling, which addressed those born to parents who were considered “in transit” and not Dominican nationals, applied retroactively to 1929. via Caribbean Journal
