After land fraud faux pas, Medina hears whistleblowers

Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina met Wednesday with attorney Laura Acosta Lora and her uncle the investigative journalist Huchi Lora, to ask about the details and documents they’ve obtained on the scandal and litigation over beach lands at Bahia de las Aguilas (southwest).

The meeting called by the President in his National Palace office began around 10:30am, after which Acosta, daughter of the late Piki Lora, said she told Medina that the Dominican State is the absolute owner of those land and therefore the only thing which needs to be done, is annul the "fraudulent" titles of the area in the hands of dozens of people.

Piki Lora was head of the Cadastre Agency when the scandal broke in 1997, and is credited with uncovering the major land fraud case.
