iciHaiti – Anse-à-Pitres: The binational market without the Dominicans
Friday in Anse-à-Pitres, despite the restrictions, the state of health emergency in Haiti and Dominican soldiers at the border, Haitian traders, who seemed to be concerned about the risks of contagion and spread of Covid-19, held the border market on Friday but only in Haiti and without the presence of Dominican buyers and sellers, while the market space on the side of Pedernales remained empty in its entirety due to the closure of the border and strict measures adopted by the Dominican Government to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
At Pedernales, the access road leading to Haiti was militarized and the soldiers did not allow the Dominicans and to certain Haitians to circulate and approach the border barrier.
On the Haitian side, at the gateway to Dominican territory, a Haitian truck was seen awaiting the purchase of food goods to bring back to Haiti, but the soldiers of the Specialized Corps for the Security of Land Borders (CESFRONT) did not have not allowed it.
