The Government’s stance on icorruption faces major test today
Santo Domingo.- The Justice Ministry’s Anti-Corruption Dept. (DPCA) will interrogate former Santiago mayor Jose Enrique Sued today Tuesday, as part of an ongoing investigation into alleged irregularities during his tenure.
The interrogation is part of the first of three high profile cases the DPCA investigates involving the misappropriations of millions of pesos of taxpayer money, and include the tenures of Amable Aristy as head of the Dominican Municipal League, and current Santiago Mayor Gilberto Serulle.
Sued, former mayor of the minority opposition PRSC party is slated to appear 10am at the office of DPCA director Hotoniel Bonilla whose subpoena says the preliminary investigation into the ex mayor’s tenure revealed “criminal irregularities,” for which his presence is necessary to clarify the facts.
The subpoena also advises Sued that the criminal procedural code requires that he comes accompanied by his attorney.
