The Ministry of Labour of the Dominican Republic has announced the official listing of public holidays in the the Dominican Republic for the year 2011.
As was the case in recent years (20-Oct-2009, 06-Nov-2008, 20-Nov-2007, 06-Dec-2006, and 15-Sep-2005), the list of dates as announced by the Secretary of State for Labour follows the 1997 "Ley No. 139-97 mediante la cual los días feriados del calendario que coincidan con los días martes y miércoles, jueves o viernes" (19-Jun-1997).
Interestingly, despite the aforementioned announcement ignores the 2008 Supreme Court ruling (21-Feb-2008) which declared un-constitutional, 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.
