Haitian and Dominican merchants joint to protest Port-au-Prince’s ban on products
Dajabón, Dominican Republic.- Dajabon´s bi-national market remains totally shuttered the second consecutive day on Friday, as Haiti merchants have joined the Dominicans in the protest against Port-au-Prince’s ban on the entry overland of 23 products from Dominican Republic.
Trucks of the powerful FENATRADO union still block the street leading to the market´s entrance, the Customs and Immigration agencies, and the border fate.
Although the border gate isn’t closed, the few Haitians whove entered have their passport with visa, but those who´ve managed to buy some products have had them seized by Haitian officials upon returning to their country.
Local media report strict screening of foreigners who enter Dominican Republic by Dominican and Haitian Immigration inspectors at the border gate.
