The report of the National Police Department of the Border Province of Independencia states that the Haitian police officers in possession of their regulatory weapons and document accrediting them as Haitian police, entered the Dominican territory and were immediately protected by members of the specialized land border security corps (CESFRONT) and their colleagues from the Dominican police, who drove them around 3:30 pm to Jean Alex Luphoil, the Consul of Haiti in Barahona.

Sunday calm prevailed at the border post of Malpasse on both sides of the borders. However, vehicle traffic was very limited between the two countries and no Dominican bus company crossed into Haiti fearing for their passengers.
