Feisty Senator again says ex President is linked to drug cartel
Santo Domingo.- Senator Wilton Guerrero, prior to testimony before the Supreme Court, said there’s no way he’ll reconcile with former president Hipolito Mejia.
The embattled legislator reiterated his accusations that the former presidential candidate of the opposition PRD party has ties to organized crime, and that he’ll prove it in due time.
The Peravia lawmaker said it’s his duty to denounce Mejia’s links with drug organizations, so the country knows "that this man cannot be its representative" in any activity, much less as a political leader.
Last Friday Mejia’s lawyers also discarded reconciliation with the legislator, who affirmed that the former chief executive used a plane piloted by a member of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The Supreme Court in December agreed to hear Mejia’s lawsuit against Guerrero and the journalist Osvaldo Santana on alleged slander, seeking RD$50 million in damages.
