Will Haitians in Dominican Republic have to pronounce "Perejil" all over again?

The process of Identifying and classifying Haitian-Dominican or any Dominican with Haitian origin has began. Within the next 30 Days, this Identification is to take place.


"Mezanmi Nin pot Dominikin Ki Gin Tit Tankou: Ti Pye, Mezadie, Petit Frere, ....Pap Citwayen Peyi Sa Anko"

The Dominican Government announced yesterday (Wednesday, October 23, 2013) that they will comply with the Constitutional Court ruling which outlines a foreigner's pathway to Dominican citizenship

This position of the Dominican government to follow the Court ruling came after a meeting by president Danilo Medina who has noted the full respect of the independence of the branches of government and constitutional powers. In the Dominican Republic

Now if your father is Dominican and you happen to carry his last name, I assume that they will have to select a Spanish word hard for Haitians to pronounce and identify them from that.

Most Haitians still have difficulty pronouncing perejil, so people who pronounced perejil without the trill Haitian would have to be denied Citizenship

It is incredible that the Dominican president has agreed to subject citizens to this undignified test. These people have been victimized all their life, working in slave like conditions.
