Most guns are smuggled by air and sea, not from Haiti- top official

Santo Domingo.- Most of the weapons are smuggled into the country by air and sea and not across the border as widely believed, Interior and Police minister Jose Ramon Fadul affirmed Tuesday, who stated his concern and said Haiti cannot be blamed for everything.

“Haiti is not the only one way guns enter, the number which enters that way is the minimum. Haiti cannot be blamed for everything.”

When asked why so many criminals are better armed than the authorities, the official said that’s not the case, “because State security agencies even have military tanks.”

Fadul, speaking in the Ciudad Nueva courthouse, revealed that the number of weapons smuggled by land is the minimum, but didn’t provide details of the gun-running business.
