Pension scandal snares another “serious” Dominican official

Santo Domingo.- Long considered a stalwart of honor in civil service, Superior Electoral Court president Mariano Rodriguez has also been linked to the latest government scandal, for which on Tuesday asked that his pension as an ex Central Electoral Board member be suspended, to remain in his public function.

"I made this decision despite the content of the communication dated June 22 this year, signed by JCE Pension Plan administrator Rafael Ortega Díaz, based on the provisions of the Central Electoral Board’s Regulations on the Pensions and Retirement Plan," he said In a letter to the JCE.

"I make this request for the period I remain in public office as president of the Superior Electoral Court," says the Oct. 18 letter by Rodriguez, who was granted a pension even though he served in the JCE only from 2006 to 2010.
