The parents of Nicole Reyes, detained in a Santiago jail for 18 months to come to DR

Santo Domingo.- The parents of British national Nicole Reyes, detained in a Santiago jail for 18 months plan to fly out to be by her side when she discovers her fate next week, outlet walesonline.co.uk reports Wednesday.

“Jeannette and Mike Clements will travel to the Dominican Republic this week ahead of their daughter’s trial for homicide.”

Reyes, 39, is charged in the death of her husband Jorge Reyes’ death in July 2012 and has remained behind bars on the island ever since, always claiming her innocence, calling it a traffic accident.

“Nicole, from Rumney in Cardiff, will now appear in court on Tuesday after the last hearing in November was adjourned. Her parents fear she could be sentenced to between 25 and 30 years in prison if convicted,” the UK outlet sad.

Clements, quoted by walesonline.co.uk, said Nicole will have to wear a bulletproof vest at the court hearing and that they will have police protection because of safety fears. “She said Nicole’s lawyer has told them there is no reason for Tuesday’s hearing to be adjourned.”

    There is much about this case that we are waiting to hear.

    1) what is the prosecutions case?
    2) Who and what reliability the witnesses?
    3) Where did all the money go?
    4) Is it a fact that the home was stripped after she was in jail and has anyone been charged?
    5) Threats from his family? What is that about? Is it that the police cannot keep a suspect safe awaiting sentence when such threats have been issued?

    This Island is heavily dependent on tourism. Visiting tourists need to feel that there is a visible and trust worthy legal system in this country.

    More transparency please.
