Human rights body condemns deportation of Haitians

Bridgetown, Barbados, CANA - The Caribbean Human Rights Network
(Caribbean Rights) has deplored the mass forcible expulsion of Haitians 
from neighbouring Dominican Republic (DR). And it has appealed to the
President of the DR. Leonel Fernandez, to urgently use his influence to 
bring an end to the injustices against Haitians in that Caribbean state. 
It said that from reports received on the plight of the Haitian
community, far too many Haitians were being indiscriminately rounded up 
by the DR's military, denied the right to secure their possessions and 
forcibly dumped across Haiti's border.
