First coercive measures in Tucanogate case
The National District court hearing the alleged bribery case in the US$93 million purchase of turboprop aircraft, the so-called Super Tucanos, has ordered three months pre-trial custody for Colonel Carlos Piccini Nunez in Najayo Jail, but restricted the coercive measures for Defense Minister Pedro Rafael Pena Antonio to an exit ban and regular court appearances.
Judge Jose Alejandro Vargas also ordered availability for court appearances and electronic tags for businessman Daniel Aquino Hernandez and his son Daniel Aquino Mendez, all accused in the Tucanogate bribery case.
The three were ordered to remain in the National District and Santo Domingo province.
