Interview: Jacqueline Charles talks rising condemnation of Dominican court ruling on WINN FM The Bigger Picture

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN) Dominican Republic nationals living outside their country are among persons protesting against a September 23 constitutional court ruling that strips tens of thousands of Dominicans of Haitian descent of their citizenship.

That’s according to the Miami Herald’s Jacqueline Charles, who is closely monitoring the citizenship issue in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean country.

“There are a lot of Dominicans outside of the Dominican Republic who, you know they are not happy about this ruling. They have joined Haitians in New York, in Miami and elsewhere in the United States in protesting against this ruling,” Charles told WINN FM’s The Bigger Picture.

The Washington-based Council on Hemispheric Affairs –COHA, has also been expressing concern about the situation.
