Dominican Republic: Human rights guarantees undermined

This submission was prepared for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the Dominican Republic in January 2019. In it, Amnesty International evaluates the implementation of recommendations made to the Dominican Republic in its previous UPR, including in relation to discrimination against LGBTI people, maternal mortality and decriminalization of abortion.

Amnesty International also raises concerns about the rights of stateless persons, attacks on human rights defenders, killings by law enforcement officials, and illegal deportations and expulsions.
