Finjus: passenger precheck benefits the country and does not touch its sovereignty

The vice-president of the Institutionality and Justice Foundation (Finjus), Servio Tulio Castaños Guzmán, said that the air pre-check agreement between the Dominican Republic and the United States benefits the Dominicans and in no way cedes any aspect of their sovereignty, as alleged by four judges who left the Constitutional Court.

He expressed that Dominican sovereignty is not touched by this agreement, and that the same article 6 of the Dominican Constitution guarantees and endorses the text of the agreement signed by the former U.S. ambassador to the country, James (Wally) Brewster, and the then Minister of Foreign Affairs, Miguel Vargas Maldonado.

The jurist recognized that the agreement benefits in particular the Punta Cana Airport, but suggested to the other Dominican airports to ask the United States to be included in the pre-check agreement, so that their flights to the United States have this advantage from the Dominican territory, according to the local press.
