Courts to rule on birth certificates of 1,088 minors of foreigners
Santo Domingo.- Central Electoral Board president Roberto Rosario on Thursday revealed that the records of 1,088 minors of non-resident foreign parents, mostly Haitians, have been remanded for the courts to decide whether to cancel or validate them.
He said the proceedings are suspended on recommendation of the JCE’s Civil Registrar Commission, stemming from the irregularities detected, including identity theft.
Rosario said it’s up to the courts to decide those cases.
He said the 1,088 cases sent to the courts are part of the 4,338 the JCE received from the Commission, noting that in addition to those, 48 others are pending Constitutional Court rulings, which “are to be respected by the JCE.”
Rosario’s statements came during a hearing in the Chamber of Deputies, which called the official on the JCE’s action to enact resolution 12-07 on birth certificates for children of foreign parents.
