Santo Domingo.- Commission president monsignor Agripino Núñez is a Board member of the construction company Acero Estrella, which formed part of the group headed by Odebrecht in the country, outlet diariolibre.com reports Wednesday.

File.- The commission designated to investigate the construction of the Punta Catalina coal-fired power plant by the Brazilian company Odebrecht, aims to provide concrete results once the probe concludes, and won't 'interfere' with the official probe.

Catholic bishop Agripino Nuñez made the announcement on Wednesday and revealed that since yesterday several members have been calling him to decide on how to conduct the field work.

A president Danilo Medina Executive Order appointed Nuñez to head the investigative commission which also includes the moguls Pedro Brache and José Luis (Pepin) Corripio, the former CEOs of the State-owned Electric Utility (CDEEE) Celso Marranzini and César Sanchez, and Dominican Society of Newspapers president Persio Maldonado among other personalities.

The prelate denied that the commission interferes with the Justice Ministry's investigation into Odebrecht's admitted payment of US$92.0 million in bribes to Dominican officials.

Non of this people can't be on this commission because they are all in someway affiliated to the government.

What a dreadful joke to play on the Dominican people.. Maybe Danilo has some strange reason for doing this but the conflict of interest is just too obvious.
