Lawyer who admits shooting at opposition party offices: “I don’t regret it”
Santo Domingo.- Embattled lawyer Diego Babado Torres on Tuesday admitted firing a gun at the headquarters of Dominican Republic’s opposition party (PRD) during Sunday’s shootout, and affirmed he doesn’t regret it.
He said he’d cooperate with any investigation but reiterated that he fired after seeing his colleagues being injured by gunfire from inside the building.
“I don’t regret it, what I did was defend my colleagues when I saw how they fell, and I’m willing to be investigated as often as necessary,” the lawyer said, quoted by elcaribe.com.do.
Torres, after defending his hard line affiliation to the party, added that he was “preparing the ground” for former president Hipolito Mejia’s arrival to the area.
