Nuncio: Church willing to serve as mediator between Haiti, Dominican Republic

Catholic World News - December 03, 2013

The new apostolic nuncio to the Dominican Republic said that the Church is willing to serve as a mediator between the Dominican Republic and Haiti, the Fides news agency reported.

Tensions between the two nations, which share the island of Hispaniola, have increased following a Dominican high court decision that stripped the children of illegal Haitian immigrants of their legal status as citizens if they were born in the Dominican Republic as early as 1929.

“We want dialogue between the two parties, and also to find a human solution, in addition to this ruling,” said Archbishop Jude Thaddeus Okolo. “If the parties want it, the Church is always ready.”
