San Pedro de Macorís murders and other unresolved corruption cases

Sergio Cedeño, member of the Social Reformist Christian Party (PRSC), observes that over two months since the murder of the two radio broadcasters, Leónidas Martínez and Luis Manuel Medina in San Pedro de Macorís on 15 February 2017, no one has been brought to justice by the authorities.

The former deputy and mayor of San Pedro said that there was a report by the commission designated by the Attorney General’s Office but no one was following up on the recommendations in regards to the murders of the two radio personalities.

Cedeño concluded his remarks by saying that the main person accused is still at large, probably because of his friendship with the Executive Branch and that nothing would happen.

On a similar topic, MetroRD publishes a report on several acknowledged corruption cases that have made headlines in the Dominican Republic, but have gone unresolved by the authorities.

These are the cases of corruption listed in MetroRD:
1. The Office of Supervisory Engineers of the Presidency and the suicide by extortion of contractor David Rodríguez.
2. The irregularities in the sale of government property in Los Tres Brazos by the governmental CORDE.
3. The death of two broadcasters in San Pedro de Macorís in a case that revealed serious irregularities in the sale of State Sugar Council property.
4. The mismanagement of RD$300 million by mayor Raul Mondesí in San Cristóbal.
5. The personal businesses of engineer Diandino Peña, former head of the Santo Domingo Metro office, not included in his statement of wealth.
6. The names of government officers who may have received bribes from the Brazilian construction company, Odebrecht.
