Dominican Republic Moves To Avert Suspension Threat

 

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Dominican Republic has taken prompt action to avoid a threat of suspension from Venezuela’s Petro Caribe energy arrangement.

Vincentian  Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves says he has written to the Venezuelan President asking him to levitra on line pharmacy suspend Santo Domingo from the programme.

Dr Gonsalves is also advocating that the www.sspsap.sk Dominican Republic be suspended from CARIFORUM, over the September 23 ruling by the country’s constitutional court that strips tens of thousands of Dominicans of Haitian descent of generic levitra pills their citizenship.

Santo Domingo-based journalist Jean Michel Caroit says the threat of suspension from Petro Caribe being pushed by Dr Gonsalves is being taken very seriously by the Dominican Government.

 Caroit told WINN FM’s The Bigger Picture that last Wednesday after the Gonsalves letter to Dominican President Danilo Medina was made public, the authorities in Santo Domingo announced that they were sending  a high level delegation to Caracas.

“That was a very quickly decided journey … and the purpose of the trip was to explain the cmelak.cz position of the Dominican government in relation to the court decision,” Caroit said.

The constitutional court ruling is being strongly denounced by former prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Lester Bird.

“It is so absolutely racist that it’s almost pathetic,” Bird told WINN FM, adding that Antiguan Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer should make a statement on the Dominican Republic situation.

Lester Bird is promising that an election victory for the Antigua Labour Party would see a new Labour administration taking a very firm stand against the Dominican Republic.

Elections are expected in Antigua and Barbuda in the new year.

The former prime minister says Dominicans in Antigua who qualify for citizenship are given that status, and St John’s should warn Santo Domingo against abusing its own citizens by down-grading their status.

We as Dominicans fully respect you right to deny citizenship to anybody you want---we have over a million Haitian living with us, an increase of 500 thousand post disaster, will your country accept couple of thousands in solidarity?

Does the government of D.R understands CARICOM goals/objective s (for regional integration- education, social, economic, political and the likes)or are their sight ONLY on the economic aspect (to get preferential access to our markets). Their actions suggests that they do not intend to honour what they sign to. If they cannot deal with one member, how will they accommodate the we recommend access that the people in the wider Caricom region will have to their country?

Venezuela may have be concerned with its own interest but we in the Caribbean MUST immediately stop people from the Dominican Republic from gaining citizenship in ALL of CARICOM until the D.R government reconsiderate its position with regards to this constitutional court ruling (we must be willing to http://www.max-villas.eu/real-viagra-overnight play hard ball since they are!). The OECS can lead in this effort.
