Prosecutors’ Odebrecht file is flawed on purpose

Former Minister of Environment and president of the Alianza por la Democracia (APD) political party, Max Puig pointed out the many contradictions in the Odebrecht bribery scandal case presented by the Attorney General Office, as reported in Acento.

Puig says that a first analysis of the Odebrecht case reveals it is plagued by serious contradictions and shows a complete lack of rigor, as well as being characterized by huge gaps and lack of fundamental data and implications. The media have been pointing out the many errors in the submission.

Puig speculates that the lack of key information in the submission could mean that the main purpose of the agreement between Odebrecht and the Medina administration was to ensure the impunity of the Brazilian company and its executives and, in exchange, the Odebrecht officers would essentially protect senior Dominican government officials who may have been involved in illegalities related the case.

Puig said that the file has been manipulated to incriminate opposition political leaders, with the clear intention of discrediting and weakening the opposition political forces. He said this most evident in the case of Andrés Bautista, president of the Partido Revolucionario Moderno (PRM). Puig believes specific actions have been taken to confuse the general public and play-down the responsibilities of actual government officers who may have accepted bribes or purposefully overvalued the public works projects.

He mentions that the Attorney General accusatory file acknowledges that bribes were paid for the granting of the Punta Catalina thermoelectric central contract, and observes that the direct responsible for the power plant should be the first seated in the bench of the accused.
