Since the recent decision of Dominican courts to cancel the citizenships of generations of those born to Haitian migrants there have been reports of violent break-outs and scrutiny from many quarters on that ruling. CARICOM met Tuesday about the matter; chairing the meeting was Hon Ralph Gonsalves, PM of St Vincent and the Grenadines.
