Dominican Republic has ‘no reason to fear’ Human Rights entity

Santo Domingo.- Presidency Legal adviser César Pina said Thursday that the Dominican Republic has no reason to fear the invitation from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) for alleged violations of the rights of persons of Haitian origin.

He said the actions of the Government have been correct and respectful of the parties involved and the ruling handed down by the Constitutional Court.

He said the Government’s actions seek a humanitarian solution to situations derived from Constitutional Court ruling 168 of 2013. "If the members of the Inter-American Commission are objective, the country doesn’t have any reason to fear from its actions, because we’ve acted in accordance with national law, within international law, and respect for human rights."

The official said there are sectors and personalities who seek relevance or public attention, “and what’s most important is that the country has organized a process that corresponds to national and international legislation.”
