Many people subject to exit bans
According to the El Nacional newspaper, more than 200,000 people are subject to exit bans from the Dominican Republic including at least 100 members of the military and police, 15,000 foreigners, bankers, former government officials, former diplomats, former mayors, former city councilors and baseball players.
The exit bans were imposed on the grounds of corruption, fraud, drug trafficking, rape and other crimes.
Most of the foreigners with exit bans are from Puerto Rico, the United States, Colombia, Venezuela, Spain, Canada and France.
Some of the bans date back 15 years and as reported many should be lifted as the original situations that led to their imposition have changed.
