    RD Embassy in Haiti waiting for justice for the murder of Gloria Perez




    The Embassy of the Dominican Republic on Monday welcomed the expressions of sympathy on the part of Dominican and Haitian families for the crime of the Dominican Gloria Guzmán Pérez (Josefina) secretary general of Dominicans living in Haiti Association, which occurred last Friday in the neighboring country.

    The diplomatic body also directed his gratitude to President Michel Martelly and members of his government, as well as the Haitian National Police and National Security officials who have expressed their solidarity and also worked in favor of avoiding the unfortunate loss.

    Said they has absolute faith that the relevant Haitian authorities will spare no efforts to pursue the perpetrators to justice.

    The Dominican Embassy in Haiti said in a statement "This horrible incident we understand it as an ominous result of those determined to overshadow the good of the Haitian people, who despite extensive testing which has been subject, in the last two years has shown a culture respectful of social peace. "

    He also called on the community of Dominicans living in Haiti to remain on alert to anti social crime insist on making a profession, but who know very clearly that under no circumstances this should be seen as an action in against the Dominicans in Haiti.

    It is recalled that the secretary general of the Dominicans Asociaciación of living in Haiti was killed 9 days after being kidnapped as they achieved, before killing her, a ransom of $ 20,000 for a total of 150 000 that was required from the family of the victim.

    Gloria Guzmán Pérez (Josefina), 50 years old was living in Haiti for 24 years and owned a beauty salon, a photo center, a floristshop and a small restaurant located on the Rue du Canape Vert, which is close to Pétionville in Port au Prince.

    The body of the Dominican was found at 11:00 am on Friday at Moquette Bois, a sector on the outskirts of Port au Prince. She had two daughters who were born in Haiti and are iving in Germany.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------




    She wasn't a Dominican diplomat in reality, she worked with close ties with the embassy of ours there as representative of the Dominican expat community in Haiti. She was the victim of the same crime that's also targeting all other biz people in Haiti, which includes foreigners that mix with the locals.

    In her particular case it's believe that the kidnappers were chance criminals that took the opportunity to grab her and demand a ransom, without ever having the intention to release her alive in the first place. She was raped for however long she was alive (believe to be about three days) and then shot execution style with a gunshot to the head by her captors once the first ransom was paid in good faith of USD$20,000, out of the total requested by them.

    In Haiti, a group of criminals with newfound fortune is the best lead Police have and already they're aware of who was involved in the crime by some tips. The problem is not knowing who did it, but capturing the criminals with a tiny Police force that can't really extend much other than in the capital and three major cities.

    It will take sometime to apprehend the men behind the crime, but we must admit it could as well mean they never get arrested as well. Bribes go a long ways in Haiti, where Policemen make way less than a Dominican cop brings in, never mind the higher authorities in the said department.

    The major difference is how Dominicans don't rush to make it a case of a hate crime by them to our citizens as they claim on an almost cyclical basis when the same happens to Haitian here in the DR. Maybe we should start doing so?

    This reminds me of a similar case (no kidnapping) where a Dominican biz women was shot execution style by the robbers after hesitated a bit frozen from the scare for all they asked for in her small shop in Haiti.::::




    Croix des Bouquets, le 15 juillet.-Germania Sanchez, une ressortissante dominicaine a été tuée dans l'après midi du 15 juillet lors d'une attaque perpétrée contre son magasin par des bandits armés, à Santo 20.
    Selon des témoins, les assaillants, au nombre de deux, étaient à moto. Les deux hommes avaient dans un premier temps réclamé la recette de la journée. Germania aurait hésité et l'un d'eux a ouvert le feu à bout portant. Germania Sanchez atteinte d'au moins deux projectiles, est morte sur le champ.
    Les deux hommes sont ensuite repartis en toute quiétude alors que l'entreprise est située sur la route de la Croix des Bouquets.
    Les riverains se disent choqués. Epouse exemplaire, mère de deux enfants, Germana Sanchez 45 ans, vivait en Haïti depuis plusieurs années. Elle dirigeait, entre autres, avec son mari, l'entreprise "Ti Kay Bet dayiti" (produits pour volaille) qui sert de modèle de réussite pour les entrepreneurs de la zone de la Croix des Bouquets.
    Germania Sanchez rejoint une liste d'hommes et de femmes d'affaires attaqués ou tués au sein de leur entreprise ces deux dernières semaines caractérisées par une augmentation alarmante des actes de cambriolage.
    Le porte-parole de la police, Franz Lerebours, a annoncé l'ouverture d'une enquête pour déterminer les circonstances du drame.



    Croix des Bouquets, on the 15th of July-Germania Sanchez, a Dominicans was killed in the afternoon of July 15 during an attack against her store by armed bandits in Santo 20.
    Witnesses said the attackers, two in number, were on a motorcycle. The two had initially demanded the sales of the day. Germania would have hesitated, and one of them opened fire at close range. Germania Sanchez reached by at least two projectiles, died on the spot.

    The two men then left quietly from the store located on the road of Croix des Bouquets.
    Local residents say they are shocked. Exemplary wife, mother of two, Germania Sanchez 45 years old, lived in Haiti for several years. It led, among others, with her husband, the company "Ti Kay dayiti Bet" (poultry products) that serves as a model of success for entrepreneurs in the area of Croix des Bouquets.
    Germania Sanchez joined a list of men and business women attacked or killed in their business over the past two weeks marked by an alarming increase in acts of robbery.
    The spokesman of the police, Franz Lerebours, announced the opening of an investigation to determine the circumstances of the drama.
    --------------------------------------------------------


    Her killers are still on the streets and you don't hear any Dominicans creating much ado in the international news about it as Haitians seem to do everytime one of theirs is done for by common crime in the DR...

    The cases pile atop each other of Dominicans attacked in Haiti and nothing comes about in the news from protests Dominicans know is crime based on pure common criminals going about their biz, unlike our next door neighbors...
    One Dominican at a time please!

    (Not completely tongue-in-cheek)

    Maybe we should mount a campaign for Dominican criminals to lay off of their compatriots and prey only on the small Haitian business owners, and perhaps kidnap some of the major Haitian businessmen in this country. Tit for tat?

    I have known that anyone in Haiti with maybe one blower and a hair dryer was open to this petty and vicious criminal element. And there are still people willing to go there as "tourists?" ...

    These two unfortunate women had lived in Haiti for years, and yet were targeted....and nothing was said in the press here.

    What a messed up place...

    you really see this as a Haitian/Dominican thing?

    People will rob anyone with anything in Haiti.
    The police are great but there are not enough of them.
    For most expats who live and work in Haiti security is a problem which they manage accordingly.
    There must have been mistakes made for this to happen.

    Again, this is tragic but it says no more about Haiti than there is a terrible crime problem and people are poor enough to rob anyone.

    And as for tourists, Haiti has much more unspoiled picture perfect Caribbean beach than the D.R.
    One day this will be opened up and those lucky ones in the know will get there first.

    I think this is indicative of where of the situation in Haiti now, precarious and maybe without hope.

    I'm beginning to think the Haitian politicians have squandered the future of their county - yet again.

    I'm sure the foreigners will get the blame - once again.

    I am supposed to go to Haiti for 2 weeks on Feb. to volunteer and assistance a Midwifery clinic that has seen their births rise to over 200/ month and they are in.desperate need of help.

    I am reconsidering.

    This is scary, although I am not Dominican, it seems that they are attacking whomever they believe may have money.

    Lived and worked there for years with no personal security and never had any serious bother by just being sensible.
    Whoever you are working with should have this nailed down - but just do not go round looking like a target.
    Listen, watch and take good advice - if you can bear that.
