Stolen Haiti aid on sale in Dominican border town - Over the last three days, the Dominican authorities have impounded three consignments of food aid donated by the international community to the victims of the Haitian earthquake that were being sold in the Dominican Republic. The Specialized Frontier Security Corps (Cesfront) in Dajabón say that the impounded food products were being sold in the local market.

Cesfront confiscated a consignment of milk that was being taken to Santiago by two Haitians and one Dominican, who managed to escape. They also impounded 3,300 canned food products that had been donated to the earthquake victims in Haiti by countries and international institutions.

Haitian traders at the market were found to be selling other donated products including bread, canned juices and bottled water. One woman, whose nationality was not disclosed, is being held by the authorities.

The confiscated merchandise is handed over to the Dominican Customs Department (DGA) in Dajabón, which delivers it to religious and humanitarian organizations in Haiti so that it can be distributed to earthquake victims, according to Cesfront.
