Haiti – DR : JCE investigates on a network of false identities of Haitian children Sunday Castillo Pantaleón Member of the Dominican Committee for International Solidarity with Haiti, denounced the existence of a mafia network, which makes false identities from the data of the Dominicans who died in the hospitals “Luis Eduardo Aybar” and “Francisco Moscoso Puello” to document illegally against finance, Haitian children born on the Dominican soil.

He said that this network “demanded the certifications of deceased persons in the legal services of these two hospitals and with this data, they document for money, Haitian children with late birth declarations, which makes them appear as children of the deceased in the Civil Registry of the JCE.”

Juan César Castaños Guzmán, the President of the JCE (“Junta Central Electoral”) instructed Dolores Fernández, the National Director of Civil Registration, to carry out a thorough investigation of these two hospitals and to the Late Reporting Unit, on all cases that match these characteristics.

Guzmán assured that “the investigation will be conducted with the levels of promptness that circumstances deserve and in a timely manner we will take all necessary legal steps.” Recalling that foreign mothers, irrespective of their nationality and not legally resident in the Dominican Republic, must register the birth of their child in the JCE Book of Aliens in accordance with the provisions of the Dominican Constitution.
