Dominican State to buy land for the wall construction on the Haitian-Dominican border

Santo Domingo.– The Dominican Government informed that it will buy the private lands located on the northern fringe of the dividing line between the Dominican Republic and Haiti, for the construction of the border wall.

The announcement was made by a commission of the Defense Ministry (MIDE) during a meeting with the people who would be evicted in the municipalities of Loma de Cabrera, Restauración and Dajabón.

The delegation was made up of Colonels Joaquincito Bocio Familia, MIDE legal consultant, and Juan Adames Almonte, coordinator of the Batalla de Sabana Larga Border Operations base in Dajabón.

Colonel Bocio explained that in a next meeting the commission will meet for the negotiation of the appraisal of the purchase of land, houses, warehouses located 200 meters from the dividing line.

During the meeting, the authorities did not offer details on the number of meters of land that will be acquired for the so-called “National Wall.” Local representatives of the Dominican Customs also attended the encounter.

Buying lands in this matter is taking the lands by the will of eminent domain. The prices paid will be argumentative. Some property owners to be shortchanged, while favored owners will cash in. Be wary of scandals that may arise from this process.

It is not uncommon for the government to buy properties through eminent domain and then sell them to private and commercial investors.

What? Who owns the land between Restauracion and Dajabon? Not wonder the State can’t control the border! The private owners must vacate area immediately or you will be part of the battles that will occur in those areas!

What you’re saying is just not logical. It’s a construction job, not a battlefield.
