Dominican Republic Supreme Court Changes Restoration Day Holiday
 
(Posted on Thursday, February 21, 2008)

Source: La Repϊblica (Santo Domingo)

The Supreme Court has declared as unconstitutional, articles 1-2-4 of law 139-97, which move the August 16 Restoration Day public holiday to the following Monday, whenever it falls on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

The change in calculation rule takes effect immediately, but as August 16 will fall on a Saturday/Sunday/Monday in 2008/2009/2010, the ruling will have a concrete effect, for the first time, in 2011.

The 1997 "Ley No. 139-97 mediante la cual los dνas feriados del calendario que coincidan con los dνas martes y miιrcoles, jueves o viernes" (19-Jun-1997) moves fixed-date mid-week public holidays to the nearest Monday, with the exception of January 1st, January 21, February 27, August 16 (on any inauguration year), September 24, and December 25 (and, presumably now, also August 16, on any given year).
