Anti corruption group demands investigation of former officials
Santo Domingo.- The movement Citizens Against Corruption (C3) on Monday demanded that the Justice Ministry’s Anti-Corruption Dept. conclude investigations into several complaints filed against former officials during president Leonel Fernandez’s term in office.
"There’ve been six or seven complaints and none has reached a trial. That’s disturbing to a society that demands strengthen its institutions, "said C3 member, retired general Juan Tomas Taveras.
Taveras warned that if there’s no series of consequences for those who’re corrupt and misappropriate taxpayers’ money, corruption will continue getting a green light in the Dominican Republic.
