Among the first inmates to be transferred figure Rafael Gonzalez Alvarez and Edwin Baquero Alvarez, taken to the new prison at La Romana, which operates under the new system.
Quoted by eldia.com.do, Justice minister Francisco Domínguez said other inmates will be gradually moved from the so-called extraditable and conjugal areas, as well as the "offices," in which figure the convicted bankers Ramon Baez Figueroa, Luis Alvarez Renta, Andres Aybar and Pedro Castillo.
Dominguez said Alvarez Renta has objected being transferred, but noted that they’ll continue gradually until Najayo has been completely incorporated by June.
