Trial set for senior Police officers ‘stole’ 950K of cocaine
Santo Domingo.- A Santo Domingo Province court on Tuesday set for July 4 a hearing in the trial against several senior Police officers accused of stealing 950 kilos of cocaine seized by the Police Narcotics Div. (DICAN).
The 1st Panel Court fixed the proceeding against the accused for 9am, after the Appellate Court declined jurisdiction, because Maximo Antonio Diaz and Augusto Ramon Veras had privileged jurisdiction, prior to their being fired.
in the indictment also figure former Dican director Col. Carlos Fernández, former COO Lt. Col. Felix Humberto Paulino; former Maj. Luciano Gomez Cabrera, former 1st Lt. Bárbaro Torres Beltrán, and enlistees Agapito Muñoz Evangelista, Pedro Almánzar González, Antolín de los Santos Zabala, Raydiris García Miranda and Miguel Ogando, cousin of Maximo Diaz.
The defendants are being held in Najayo prison and a jail at San Pedro, charged with conspiracy, influence peddling, embezzlement and forgery.
