Canoa tried to re-position himself in the Cabarete’s office despite having pending court cases
PUERTO PLATA The suspended head of the District Board of Cabarete; Gabriel Antonio Ramirez Mora (Canoa), on Monday presumably attempted Monday to reposition in office, after being acquitted on charges of embezzlement and squandering of public funds.
Mora Ramirez was suspended from office by the judgment of the Superior Electoral Court on 29 November, 2013 on charges of embezzling and misappropriating more than 102 million of public funds allocated to the District Board of Cabarete.
The attempt to recover the Canoa’s position for which he was elected, was revealed on Sunday by Angel Lockward politician and lawyer, who said Mora Ramirez filed an amparo to be known today at 3:00 pm at the Court of First Instance of Puerto Plata, because the council (district Cabarete vocals) refused to reinstate the charge.
The members of the District Board of Cabarete which currently is led on an interim basis by Ms Raquel Sierra argue that the criminal proceedings against him disable him from the exercise of the public functions, Article 44 of Law 176/07 the National District. There is also the Judgment 036/2013 of Superior Electoral Tribunal (TSE), that Mora Ramirez has five criminal charges for various crimes, including counterfeiting of minutes of the City Council.
