Defense to retire nearly 200 officers
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s Defense Ministry on Sunday asked the Executive Branch to place nearly 200 officers on retirement, including a general and an admiral and more than 30 senior, mid line, and junior officers of the Air Force, Army and Navy.
The list of future retirees also includes 9 non-commissioned officers.
Among the officers who’ll be pensioned figures Air Force Maj. Gen. Ismael A. Alvarado, who maintains a public conflict with the Defense Ministry over the control of the military Social Security funds.
Alvarado has yet to pay a RD$3.0 million loan taken when he was deputy Defense minister and chair of the commission to create the Armed Forces Co-Op.
He was also the target of scathing critique doing business with loans for members of the military, while managing the Co-Op’s loan portfolio.
