Dominican Republic: Dominican Gov. announces gun-buyback

Santo Domingo.- President Luis Abinader on Monday announces some measures of the Citizen Security Plan, in a ceremony in the National Palace.

He said the Plan aims to disarm the population as of April 6 of this year, with a program to buy back illegal weapons in civilian hands, to reduce deaths and violence.

For this he establishes an incentive, both economic and coupons to exchange in commercial establishments and others.

“That is why we are going to initiate an innovative program to buy back illegal weapons with the collaboration of the entire social, community, union, religious and business sector, with which the Ministry of the Interior and Police will open channels of dialogue for their collaboration.”
