iciHaiti - DR : GAAR deplores the continued repatriation of pregnant women
The Groupe d'Appui aux Rapatriés et Réfugiés (GARR), a human rights organization deplores that despite the talks that have been initiated between Haiti and the Dominican Republic via the special envoy and ex-ambassador Daniel Supplice, the Dominican authorities are continuing the repatriation activities to Haiti, in particular Haitian pregnant women in an irregular migratory situation.

On November 17 and 18, 2021, at the end of Daniel Supplice's mission https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35255-haiti-diplomacy-end-of-mission-of-special-envoy-daniel-supplice-in-dominican-rep.html , Dominican migration agents have repatriated more than 400 people to Ouanaminthe (North East) and Belladère (Center). "Among these returnees, GARR received two young health science students from Cap-Haitien who were apprehended in Santiago and taken to the Belladère border, accompanied by dozens of other migrants."

"For the first 18 days of November, GARR recorded a total of 1,541 returnees, including 153 pregnant women, 9 breastfeeding women and 128 children (76 girls and 52 boys)."

"The GARR strongly denounces these repatriations, which are carried out in total disregard of the Protocol on repatriation mechanisms signed by the two States in December 1999, in which the principle of the non-separation of families is clearly mentioned. He takes the opportunity to call on the Dominican authorities to suspend the hunting and massive repatriation of pregnant women, which is a serious violation of migration laws according to which detention must never be used in the cases of minors, pregnant or breastfeeding women, elderly people and asylum seekers."
