Court sends late drug suspect’s entire family to jail
Santo Domingo.- A Santo Domingo province court sent the parents, his widow and a sister, of drug trafficker Junior Javier Minaya (Gilbert) to spend three months in jail to await an investigation on drug trafficking and conspiracy charges.
Permanent Attention Court judge Josefina Ubiera on Sunday ruled to jail Gilbert’s parents Ilaria Germán, aka Iberia, and Rafael Minaya, his widow Daniela Duran and Giselle Carrasco, wife of the brother and his alleged lieutenant, Joan Rafael "El Topo".
The three women were remanded to Najayo prison and Gilbert father to La Victoria.
The court ruled for the prosecution’s request to jail the defendants, arrested Friday morning during a raid by antinarcotics agents, just one week after Gilbert died during an alleged shootout with a police patrol.
