Another Canadian faces jail in Dreams Casino ‘mafia’ scandal
Santo Domingo.- The National District Office of the Prosecutor on Thursday requested pretrial detention of foreign businessman Pavle Kolic, charged with forgery, resulting from an investigation with Canadian authorities into an alleged international mafia that infiltrated the company Dream Casinos Corp.
The prosecution told National District Permanent Attention judge Jose A. Vargas that the accused had been deported out of the country but managed to avert security checks to return to Dominican territory.
Authorities say Kolic sought to forge Dream Casinos documents in the case linked to Canadian Antonio Carbone, being held on a charge of the attempted murder of company executive Fernando Baez Guerrero.
Court papers call Kolic “extremely dangerous” with charges pending in Canada for allegedly trying to murder Dream Casinos president in that nation, Andrew Pajak.
The defendant was arrested last Friday on a complaint filed by Pajak, for allegedly trying to change the company’s registry.
