Dominican senator is again 2nd in global ‘major corruption’ rank
Santo Domingo.- Beleaguered Dominican senator Felix Bautista still ranks among Transparency International top people who most symbolize major corruption, holding on to second place with 9,726 votes.
The also secretary of Dominican Republic’s ruling party (PLD) reached first place two weeks ago, but displaced by the PETROBRAS scandal in Brazil, a the corruption case against former Ukraine president Viktor Yanukovych, who ranks second in the ratings of the Berlin-based watchdog.
On Monday Bautista moved into second place with 9,726 votes, to Yanukovich’s 13,097 in the first place.
Votes can be cast until February 9 at www.unmaskthecorrupt.org, as part of the “Expose the corrupt,” the global organization’s fight against economic crime in the public sector.
According to the watchdog group, although Bautista allegedly embezzled taxpayers’ money, his political connections make him seem “untouchable.”
