Civil organizations to protest against Penal Code amendment

Santo Domingo.– Civil society organizations and independent citizens will protest Saturday afternoon in the Parque Independencia against an amendment to the Penal Code which denies a plaintiff’s right to file corruption charges against government officials.

The event is scheduled for 4:00 pm. The protest organizers will ask the head of State not to enact the Penal Code until the third paragraph of article 85 is restored allowing citizens to sue embezzlers and corrupt government officials.
