Dominican Republic asks INTERPOL to arrest Polish priest
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s top prosecutor on Thursday asked INTERPOL to arrest Polish national Wojciech Gil (Padre Alberto), indicted on several counts of sexually molesting at least seven minors.
Justice minister Francisco Dominguez’s request comes just hours after a panel of judges from the Santiago District Criminal Court declared the accused a fugitive, for failing to appear to face the pedophilia charges filed the parents of the boys in the village of Juncalito, in that north-central province.
In a statement, Dominguez said Gil is charged with rape and aggravated sexual assault of several children from the community near the town of Jánico. "We are going to resort to all the necessary judicial resources, both locally and abroad, so this case doesn’t go unpunished.”
