Haiti PM ‘torturer’ moniker draws more Dominican fire
Santo Domingo.- The head of the minority FNP party and until recently director of the Government Ethics Commission on Wednesday railed against the "torturer" moniker Haiti prime minister Evans Paul gave the Dominican Republic, in response the Foreign minister Andres Navarro’s request for a public apology by Port-au-Prince.
Marino V. Castillo, who also called on president Danilo Medina to defend the country against what he affirms is a Haitian offensive, is the most recent of local personalities to demand a response for Paul’s ‘torturer’ label.
"The Dominican government is obliged to defend Dominican Republic’s honor, rejecting offenses pronounced by Haiti’s head of government. The Haitian government’s goal is to escalate and heathen the crisis between the two countries and turn the migration and repatriation issue into an international conflict, preventing the Dominican Republic from exercises its sovereign right to repatriate illegal aliens in its territory," Castillo said.
Paul voiced the term "torturer" at a rally in streets of Port-au-Prince to protest alleged mistreatment of their compatriots in the Dominican Republic.
