Agents watch returning Dominican pilots in plane heist case
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s security and Immigration agencies Monday started to watch the pilots who enter the country as passengers from Central and South America.
The measure seeks to determine who stole the aircraft 10 days ago from a La Isabela International Airport Higuero (AILI) hangar, from where it was flown to Venezuela by Dominican pilots.
For that reason the authorities including the National Investigations Department, and Military Intelligence have a complete and updated list of the Dominican pilots and run strict checks on their travel documents as they arrive from those countries, to see if their passports have the exit and entry stamps
The operation being conducted in the international airports stems from the authorities’ initial belief the craft had been piloted by two Venezuelans, but who were later arrested and are now in custody.
