Cabarete Mayor stages another violent incident
PUERTO PLATA, Dominican Republic. – A transport worker from Cabarete filed a charge of attempted murder against that community’s mayor, and requested a prison sentence and 25 million in damages.
According to the complaint the transport worker Ambiorix Vargas and two other people in a car passed closed to Gabriel Mora’s (Canoa) SUV on March 15 near 5pm, when the Mayor pulled a pistol and fired three times until bystanders managed to stop him. Vargas said his car has three bullet holes from the gun fired.
Mora has had a string of violent incidents and contempt of court, stemming from the official’s refusal to comply with a judge’s ruling to hand over all of the Municipal District’s financial information to the Cabarete Development Association (ADECA).
ADECA Board member Gay Crosier said it’s the fourth violent incident involving Mora.
