Ex Haitian PM posts video shows alleged abuse by Dominicans

Jovenel Moise, Claude Joseph.

Santo Domingo.- Former interim Prime Minister of Haiti, Claude Joseph, released a video where Dominican soldiers are seen mistreating a person, who appears to be a Haitian immigrant.

Joseph uploaded a video, which does not date or give details about when or where it was recorded, and in it some four Dominican soldiers can be seen, one of them wearing DGM (General Directorate of Migration) garb struggling with the civilian.

The video, recorded behind an apparent metal fence, shows how the soldiers take the citizen by his clothes, hitting him first with a chain and then with a sort of wooden cane.

The audio of the video cannot be understood, but at the end it is heard saying only “not like that,” however, there is no context for the situation shown.

“This is how Dominican soldiers are treating Haitians in the Dominican Republic. This is unacceptable,” he tweeted.

Not a good move to post such a video, with no date or explanation. He’s trying to sow discord. While I am against any type of abuse, I am also against undermining tactics.

Look like this guy is looking for trouble, an ex diplomat, is he bored ? Does he want me to send videos of Haitians killing Dominican on our side of island, What an idiot of leader Haitians got, Like I said before Haitians will never progress with leaders like that . They should leave the island or give their side of island to the Dominicans , since they can’t govern themselves. The Dominican government should consider this person ( persona non grata) he shouldn’t be allowed in Dominican territory, even if he is elected again.

How about how Haitian soldiers and police treats Dominican in Haiti. Dominicans are not treat it decently in that country because they hate us and are raise with the idea that we stole their land and this country belongs to them.

There is no video attachment to assert the mistreatment.

Is there censorship or the mistreatment did not happen ?

This man is a clown since day 1 i knew it, poor perfomance, poor diplomatic skills, he only goes to programs to talk about jovenel moise death to remain somehow relevant, man doesnt even have a real plan for haiti.

The man has found the weakness from the low educated haitians he knows pretty damn well that haitian tend to hate faster rather than love someone so he is using all the hate and frustration that the haitians have acumulating towards the Dominicans to find someone to blame for all haitians disgrace and unite themself into one simple objective: lets blame DR for their abuses and win popularity at the same time like a saviour or a warrior from the people.

The man little knows that he is playing with fire and might face the same path as desalines or jovenel moise killed by its own people..

There has to be a reason why he is being treated in this manner, none of us know why not that I agree with his treatment Depending on the situation! Let’s be real here THIS A MILITARIZED ZONE these are soldiers not your average police officers , there job is to protect that border, right now some way some how this man is viewed as a threat, could be a known gangmember from the 400 mowozo ? Or could it be some thing worse or just a huge screwup by our military? We shall see
