Embattled Haiti leader thanks Dominican President for Law on aliens
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.- Haiti president Michel Martelly on Wednesday thanked Dominican counterpart Danilo Medina for signing the Naturalization Act to regularize aliens into law, and congratulated him for "delivering on his pledge."
The announcement came as thousands of protesters in Port-au-Prince demanded his resignation as President, and while Haiti’s Head of State is at the extreme eastern tip of the island of Hispaniola.
Martelly met with Puntacana Group president Frank Rainieri, from where he sent "a special greeting of solidarity, fraternity and cordiality to Medina."
"The President is a man who respects his word, since the situation we’ve experienced could be worse, but the President has intervened and promised to help solve the problems," he said.
Martelly added that after the Constitutional Court ruling he met with Medina several times and "always promised to take the best measures to safeguard those who had been affected by this decision."
