Armed robberies spur heightened vigilance over deportees
Santo Domingo.- Justice minister Jean Alain Rodriguez on Thursday announced a project to improve the system which detects and identifies fugitives deportees.
The announcement comes in the heels of several armed robberies and other felonies in which deportees were allegedly involved.
Rodriguez said it will be a more precise link with other government agencies and the judiciary, to provide follow up on people wanted by justice. “We have to do a crossing of data with the judiciary, but the data which the Dominican government relies on is still basic.”
In a visit to Listin Diario editor in chief Miguel Franjul, the official stressed the effort to provide the judicial system with “a much more effective database.”
He noted that while the Central Electoral Board (JCE) and other agencies already have systems to register deported Dominicans, “this is something much more advanced and effective to identify and locate deportees.
“With them, we not only want to know who they are, because there is already a record, we want to know where they live, where they will be, what they will do, to provide follow up.
