Government upheaval in Haiti affects success of Legalization Plan
The political turmoil in Haiti, including the Prime Minister’s resignation, changes in Michel Martelly’s cabinet and the continued postponement of the congressional elections, has diluted the effects of the National Legalization Plan. The Plan’s success depends on the Haitian government providing its citizens with basic documentation.
In an interview on Uno+Uno TV show with journalist Juan Bolivar Diaz yesterday, Thursday 22 January 2015, Haitian ambassador in the DR Fritz Cineas admitted the problems his country’s authorities have experienced in delivering the documents requested for Haitians to legalize their status in the Dominican Republic. He said that financial problems in Haiti have prevented the government from opening offices for issuing documentation to Haitian citizens in Santo Domingo and the four cities where Haiti has consulates in the Dominican Republic. He said that as a result the Santo Domingo mission has been swamped and has not been able to deliver.
