Not everyone supports ICSSI's contract in the Caribbean nation, as constituted. Foes include the American Chamber of Commerce of the Dominican Republic, a trade organization representing about 2,500 American and Dominican companies.
The group said that while it doesn't oppose "increased security measures ... we oppose the contract as conceived" -- claiming it gives ICSSI a "monopoly (in) violation of the Dominican constitution."
"They are not what we believe they should be, and they violate all sorts of international treaties," said the chamber, which further claims ICSSI's rates are exorbitant. "The ICSSI contract undermines national competitiveness, and there is no added value to it."
