Prosecutor says there’re more people in Puerto Rican kingpin’s network

Santo Domingo.- Puerto Rico and Dominican authorities have identified the people linked to Puerto Rican kingpin Jose Figueroa Agosto’s network, and could be arrested at any time, National District prosecutor Alejandro Moscoso revealed Sunday.

Though now decapitated, the official called Figueroa’s structure great and important, for which he doesn’t discard that other people are also involved. “We don’t harbor any concern that we’ll see an exemplary sentence in this process because of all the evidence contained in the indictment. We make every effort for an exemplary sentence.”

Interviewed in the Ciudad Nueva Courthouse by news source elnacional.com.do, Moscoso said the Justice Ministry is confident the National District Court of Appeals will uphold a lower court’s convictions of the nine indicted members of Figueroa’s network. “It was a large and important structure for which the Office of the Prosecutor cannot venture to say the case is closed, other people exist within the criminal organization which Figueroa headed.”
