PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – On Monday, the Haitian Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed the press of the decision of the Haitian Government to recall its Ambassador to the Dominican Republic, Fritz Cinéas, from Santo Domingo.
The notice sent to The Sentinel by Foreign Affairs Minister Pierre Richard Casimir specifically noted the measure was in response to the September 26, 2013 decision of the Dominican Constitutional Court’s order to strip citizenship of descendants of aliens.
In a statement, the Haitian Chancellery said it:
“…is very concerned by this decision. It will set the position of the Government of Haiti as soon as possible.”
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs avails itself of this opportunity to renew to the broadcast media, television and the written assurance of its highest consideration.”
The Sentinel has asked some of Haiti’s senior officials on whether the nation would seek any sort of sanctioning of the Dominican Republic with the support of regional and international organizations such as Caricom, the Organization of American States, and the United Nations, which all have expressed some form of distaste for the Dominican Republic’s decision; Haitian officials did not immediately respond on the matter, saying further consultations are being made.
