Ex-President’s close collaborator subpoenaed in embezzlement case
Santo Domingo.- The National District Office of the Prosecutor on Tuesday subpoenaed former Public Works minister Víctor Díaz Rúa, to face charges of money laundering and embezzlement.
Prosecutor Yeni Berenice Reyoso notifies Diaz Rua to "to submit defense documents or relevant and pertinent observations within 15 days from the date the papers were served."
The notification was also served on Miguel Valerio, the lawyer who defend co-defendant Mustafa Abu Naba’a, of the charges filed May 4, 2013, by the Justice First Foundation, and by the civic movement Citizens Against Corruption on January 8, 2014.
Diaz Rua’s attorneys filed a challenge to force the National District Prosecutor to drop the ever widening case against the close collaborator of former president Leonel Fernandez, and which unleashed a confrontation between Reynoso and the now recused judge, Margarita Cristo.
