Murders, union bosses vendettas revisit Hoffa’s notorious Teamsters
Santo Domingo.- Unatrafin transport union president Arsenio Quevedo on Monday announced that he’ll file slander charges this week, just hours after rival union boss and deputy Juan Hubieres accused him of forming part of the people and entities which receive “dirty money” from drug kingpin Quirino Paulino.
The announcement of charges forms part of the increasing intertwining of politicians and transport union leader, akin to the notorious Teamsters in the US, which culminated with Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance.
Quevedo’s lawyer William Garabito said Hubieres will have to prove Unatrafín’s alleged conspiracy in court, as the union leader and lawmaker repeatedly voiced.
Quevedo spoke after leaving the office of National District prosecutor Yeni Berenice Reynoso, who questioned him on alleged evidence which surfaced last week in the murders of three members of Hubieres’ group, Fenatrano.
