The Secretary of State for Labour of the Dominican Republic, Andrés Valentín Herrera, has announced the official listing of public holidays in the Dominican Republic for the year 2010.
As was the case in recent years (06-Nov-2008, 20-Nov-2007, 06-Dec-2006, and 15-Sep-2005), the list of dates as announced by the Secretary of State 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).
In addition, the Secretary's statement specifically referred to the recent decree of the Dominican Republic Supreme Court (21-Feb-2008) which declared as unconstitutional, the articles law 139-97, which move the August 16 Restoration Day public holiday to an adjoining Monday.
