UN warning: 4,000 escaped Haitian convicts may try to enter Dominican Republic
DominicanToday.com - The Government and the United Nations Haiti Stabilization Mission (Minustah) try to keep more than 4,000 convicts who escaped Haiti jails during the January 12 quake from crossing the border into Dominican Republic.

For that reason aims Minustah authorities proposed to president Leonel Fernandez to bolster security along the border to prevent their crossing into Dominican territory.

The chief executive tackled the problem with Minustah mission leader Edmond Mulet in a private meeting in the National Palace, in addition to Haiti’s reconstruction process.

Mulet told Fernandez that more than 4,200 Haitian criminals escaped from Port-au-Prince’s Central Penitentiary, situation which Minustah faces jointly with Haiti National Police and which requires a major effort to prevent their crossing into the Dominican side of the border.

It’s calculated that of the more than 4,200 prisoners who during the quake escaped while doing time for drug trafficking and other crimes, barely 300 have been captured.
