Prosecutor says judges are too soft against metal thieves
Santo Domingo.- Electric System (Pégase) prosecutor Moises Ferrer complained on Monday that certain judges are too flexible with their rulings against those accused of stealing from or sabotaging the national power grid.
The official reacted dissatisfied by the ruling against the owners of the metal dealer Santa Cruz, where investigators confiscated hundreds of parts of stolen power line posts.
Santo Domingo Province Permanent Attention judge Richard Aquino ruled only regular appearance to the Office of the Prosecutor ban exit impediment against Manuel R. Hilario, 81, and his son Luis, 46.
Ferrer said the ruling was handed down despite that after an investigation lasting several days strong evidence was found to link the Hilarios to the felony.
