Dominican Republic To Appear Before Human Rights Commission on Citizenship Issue
The Dominican Republic will have to appear before the Inter-American Human Rights for its alleged “absence of effective judicial response in cases of denaturalization” on 417 descendants of undocumented Haitians, the newspaper Dominican Today reported on Sept 30.
The request was submitted to the commission last August by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, Global Rights, and the Dominican-Haitian Women Movement (Mudha), headed by 2006 RFK Human Rights Award Laureate Sonia Pierre, among others.
