Haiti - FLASH : Former PM Claude Joseph and 12 gang leaders banned from entering the Dominican Republic
On Wednesday, September 7 in the evening, President Luis Abinader, in a communication (#22018) addressed to the Director General of Immigration, within the framework of the application of article 15 of law 285-04, of the immigration and its implementing regulations, which prevent the entry into the national territory of foreigners who have a criminal record or who, in the opinion of the competent authorities, constitute a type of threat against national security and the interests of the Republic, ordered the banning to enter the Dominican territory of former Prime Minister a.i. Claude Joseph, as well as 12 Haitian gang leaders.

"[...] I, Luis Abinader, Constitutional President of the Dominican Republic, by virtue of the powers conferred on me by Article 128 of the Constitution of the Republic, issue the following instruction [...] request to prevent the entry on the national territory of Claude Joseph, Jimmy Cherizier alias “Barbecue” [Head of the G9 coltation]; Innocent Vitel’Homme aka “Vitelom” Leader of the Torcelle Gang; Destina Renel alias “Ti Lapli” Leader of the Grand Ravine Gang; Wilson Joseph alias “Lanmo San Jou” Leader of the “400 Mawozo” gang; Claudy Célestin aka “Chen Mechan” Leader of the “Chen Mechan” gang (Carrefour-Tabarre); Alexandre Ezekiel, alias “Ze” Chef of “Baz Pilat”; Kempes Sanon Head of “Baz BelAir”; Chery Christ-Roi, aka “Chris-La”; Félix Monel aka “Mikano” Chief “Baz Waff Jérémie”; Jean Pierre Gabriel alias “Ti Gabriel”- Head of the “Gpèp” coltation; Alexis Serge Renel alias “Ti Junior” and Orlichen Emile alias “Pe Lebren” Chief of “Baz Delmas”. [...]"

Let's recall that the former Prime Minister Joseph, very critical of the Dominican Government and the Haitian authorities, had last June described President Abinader as "hypocritical" after the Dominican Republic had not agreed to regularize all Haitians in an irregular migratory situation living on Dominican territory, saying in several Tweets about the Dominican President "[...] He is a man who does not keep his promise at the national level on many issues, but believes that he can use Haiti as his last resort to pander to the ultra-nationalists of his country and win votes [...]"

He had also criticized Abinader for speaking on behalf of Haiti without having the mandate, reminding him that he was not President of the island https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35151-haiti-flash-irritated-response-from-claude-jospeh-to-president-abinader.html . He was also involved (among other things) in stopping the construction of the irrigation canal on the Haitian side, https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-36174-haiti-politic-claude-joseph-deplores-the-stoppage-of-the-construction-of-the-irrigation-canal-of-the-massacre-river.html which was to capture water from the Massacre River, in the northern area of ​​the Haitian border, to irrigate the agricultural land in the towns of Meac, Ferie and Derac, adjacent to the municipality of Ouanaminthe. A politically sensitive file, source of strong tensions between the two countries which accuse each other because of differences on the interpretation of the historic treaties signed between the two Nations.
