Officials, senior power company executives face fraud charges
Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Anticorruption Alliance (Adocco) on Wednesday filed charges against officials of the agency which manages funds derived from the State-owned companies (FONPER), and several executives of major power companies.
Adocco’s charges were filed against FONPER president Fernando Rosa, legal adviser Luis A. Moquete Pelletier, and current and former executives of the power companies, EGE Haina, and EGE ITABO; Edgar Deboyrie Pichardo, Rolando Gonzalez Bunster, Pastor Sanjurjo;: Marco Antonio De La Rosa, Manuel Perez Dubuc, Joseph Julian Nebreda, Kevin Manning and Damian Eduardo Villareal.
"What the FONPER constitutes is the greatest challenge to prosecute the combination of public and private corruption,” Adocco said in a statement.
Adocco based its lawsuit against FONPER’s president on alleged fraud, claiming ballooned fees to manage the EGE Haina facility, as stipulated in the contract of October 28,1999, amended September 8, 2001.
