Bill again seeks to cull the country’s stay-at-home generals

Santo Domingo.- The Senate on Wednesday approved the bill for the National Police Statues, which limits the time for enlisted members to remain in a low rank to six years and seven years for middle rank.

The proposed legislation is yet another push to rid the country of dozens of still active generals, most of whom don’t request retirement despite having no functions.

It also limits the time general remains in that rank to 10 years old, after which they’ll be placed in retirement, unless they’re performing carrying out senior duties in the National Police, in which case retirement will take place when they cease that function.

The bill, which had been studied by a bicameral commission, died in the previous legislature, now goes to the Chamber of Deputies for debate.
