Acento: Report on the multimillionaires in the Medina cabinet

Acento is carrying a report on the multimillionaires in the Medina cabinet. The report reveals that the stated wealth of the ministers and President Danilo Medina and Vice President Margarita Cedeno adds up to around RD$3 billion. The report only takes into account the written statement of wealth, a legal requirement.

As of 2016, government ministers are required by Decree 92-16 issued by President Danilo Medina himself to present their Tax Agency (DGII) tax payments for the declared amounts. The Newsletter 5 of the Social Laboratorio Father José Antonio Esquivel listed most of the ministers as not complying with the requirement of filing their DGII tax certificate of payment of taxes for the declared worth.
