Protesters want Medina, Fernandez, and Mejia investigated
Santo Domingo.- The social and citizens’ organizations that have called for a march on Sunday to demand prosecutions in the Odebrecht scandal on Tuesday asked the Accounts Chamber to review the financial statements of some 30 officials and former officials with links to the Brazilian company since 2001.
The request includes the statements submitted by president Danilo Medina, former presidents Leonel Fernández and Hipólito Mejía, as well as former Public Works ministers Victor Diaz Rúa and Miguel Vargas as well as current minister Gonzalo Castillo, among others.
Group spokesman Carlos Pimentel said the senators and deputies should also be included.
In a statement delivered to the Accounts Chamber office which evaluates and inspects the financial statement submitted by government officials, group representatives María Teresa Cabrera, Fernando Henríquez and Bartolomé Pujals stress the need to verify and identify potential embezzlement.
