iciHaiti - FLASH DR : Haitians burn the Dominican forest, 18,000 bags of charcoal seized
General Frugis Martinez, Director of the Terrestrial Border Security Specialized Corps (CESFRONT) deplored the unlawful acts of Haitians crossing the border illegally to cut down trees in border areas to make charcoal from illegal stoves http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-13115-haiti-environment-haitians-deforest-illegally-the-dominican-border-area.html charcoal that is then smuggled into the neighboring country to supply the Haitian market, a major consumer of charcoal in disadvantaged areas. He revealed that only in the last months of 2017, soldiers in charge of border surveillance seized nearly 18,000 bags of charcoal.

He also informed that during the year as part of the fight against smuggling from Haiti were seized among others: 1,300 gallons of clairin, nearly 80 tons of garlic, 3,275 pounds of marijuana and nearly 5 millions of packets of cigarettes of different Haitian brands.

General Frugis Martinez recalled that the military at the border is active 24/24 not only to contain traffic and illegal entry of people in the territory, but also to fight against smuggling and other criminal acts that take place in the border area.
