SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (defend.ht) - The Dominican police and the Dominican national army held an operation of "violent" evictions of dozens of allegedly Haitian nationals who were occupying the public space of the Villas Agricolas, Distrito Nacional in the capital city of Santo Domingo.

Dapre El Caribe , the Haitian nationals complained that they were treated savagely by the agents who patrol the vicinity of Maximo Gomez Avenue and 38th street.

The dislodged said they were "beaten savagely, regardless of age, sex or if they were pregnant women."

They said that they were pushed and thrown as "loads" in the back of trucks and that their goods were scattered on the pavement, which is sure to leave them with many economic losses.

The Sentinel was unable to confirm if in fact all those evicted were Haitian nationals nor the reasons why the persons were "occupying" the "public spaces." Does occupying mean they were in the space or does it mean they were living in the place and does public space mean what it means in most nations, spaces that are for public use? These questions were relayed to the Dominican national police in Santo Domingo.
