Dominican, Haiti truckers’ standoff halts freight again
Zoom Picture Jimaní, Dominican Republic. – Members of the Dominican truckers union (Fenatrado) yesterday prevented Haitian trucks from entering Dominican territory, and all freight which came from Santo Domingo was also turned back, in a resurgence of the impasse between truck drivers from both countries.
Despite the conflict, Jimaní’s and Dajabón’s border markets operated normally.
The Haitians demand half the freight which is taken from Dominican Republic to Haiti and a 4,000 peso “toll” to let the load continue to its final destination.
Fenatrado executive Bori Vásquez said they’ll be on watch round-the-clock and won’t allow “not even a mosquito” to pass, whereas the union president Blas Peralta said the situation is the same in the border towns Dajabón, Pedernales and Elías Piña, and that it’s up to the authorities in both countries to solve the situation.
There were no trucks on the Barahona, Duvergé and Jimaní highway yesterday, except those which carry products from the border region to Santo Domingo.
