Bail is set at RD$300,00 for nephew of Interior minister
SANTIAGO. Judge Luis Nobel Gil, of the Judicial Office of Services of Permanent Attention of the Judicial District of Santiago, imposed an economic guarantee (a bail bond) of RD$300,000 on the Dominican vice consul in the city of New York, Eduardo Miguel Villaman Fadul for aggression against two agents of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (AMET).
The coercive measure against Villaman Fadul, who is the nephew of the minister of Interior and Police, José Ramon Fadul (Monchy), was imposed in response to the petition made by the Justice Department, and requires periodic presentation before the authorities at the end of the month.
No travel restrictions were imposed on Villaman Fadul by the judge.
While he was being transferred from the courtroom to the so-called “little jail” at the judicial office, Villaman Fadul was pounded by questions from reporters, but he limited himself to just smiling.
Eduardo Miguel Villaman Fadul presented himself yesterday morning before the District Attorney, where he remained detained under arrest. The vice consul is accused of insulting two AMET agents, after allegedly being stopped for a traffic violation.
The incident was captured on video and quickly spread throughout the social networks. In the video Villaman Fadul is seen violently pushing the agents and cussing them. In addition a wheel of the SUV in which Fadul was traveling ran over the right foot of Corporal Vidal Reyes Batista, causing him injuries.
The incidents happened last Friday at the intersection of Salvador Estrella Sadhala and Argentina avenues, in Santiago.
