Religious leader demands a halt to corruption
Santo Domingo.– The National Evangelical Concentration yesterday demanded that the Dominican authorities take drastic measures against an increasing problem affecting the country, corruption, "a problem that enslaves Dominicans, a scourge that causes poverty and inequality."
In a massive gathering, Evangelical Christian leader and pastor Ezequiel Molina listed some of the systems that are corrupt, such as the health system, and emphasized that "those who run it turn a blind eye to false exercise and medicine trade."
According to El Nuevo Diario, Molina also pointed his finger at the energy system, which he said "generators charge the citizen for not provided services and nobody can control that."
In the presence of Dominican president Danilo Medina, pastor Molina admitted to be convinced that most of the country’s rulers reach the presidential chair with a briefcase full of good intentions, but something changes them and that is the power of a very well articulated corruption system, leaving only three options: confront corruption, be indifferent or leave.
