Haiti - Denationalisation : Preliminary Conclusions of the IACHR
Friday, after several days of investigation and review of 3,994 complaints, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) concluded in its preliminary report that 168-13 judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal (TC) Dominican, which leads to an arbitrary deprivation of nationality of thousands of Dominicans of Haitian descent is discriminatory and violates the rights of Dominicans.

IACHR recommend to the Dominican authorities to guarantee the right to the nationality of people who already had this right under the existing national regime between 1929 and 2010. The IACHR also recalled that persons considered by this Decision of the court "are not migrants but have deep roots in the Dominican Republic where they were born."

Colette Lespinasse, Coordinator General of the Executive Committee of the Support Group Repatriated and Refugees (GARR) welcomed the preliminary findings of the IACHR, while recognizing that this resolution was not binding but was a moral pressure to force the Dominican authorities to reconsider their decision "It is necessary that the Dominican Republic understands that it can not, on the basis of sovereignty, treating citizens with so many contempt, and continue to build a society with two classes of citizens, true and false Dominicans."

Recall that last week, the Dominican President Danilo Medina announced a national plan for the regularization of foreigners in irregular situation in the Dominican Republic [a period of 18 months is provided for people to put themselves in compliance with the immigration laws.]

Reacting to the findings of the IACHR, the Deputy Abel Martinez, President of the Dominican House of Deputies recalled that the IACHR gives advice and recommendations, but does not have the force of law and that his country will never renounce to its immigration policy.
