Dominicans in NYC slam new Sports Minister as ‘common swindler’
New York.- The Al-País Party in New York on Saturday said DaniloDiaz’s designation as Sports Minister reveals the weak will of the administration of the ruling PLD party to tacklecorruption and its contempt for the Dominican community abroad.
It said Diaz is the same character who was forced to repaymore than US$540,000 to 29 people who were defrauded in the Pueblo Bavaro housingproject.
"Exposed as a common swindler by the judicialauthorities in New York, the now minister in Danilo Medina’s administration hasalso been barred from dealing in real estate in this city," the political organizationsaid in a statement quoted by acento.com.do.
Al-Pais stressed that there’s no assurance that Diaz hascomplied in all its parts with the court-ordered agreement. “There’s no doubtthat the mantle of impunity that covers the corrupt Dominican politicians is reinforcedwith designations such as senior PLD leader Danilo Diaz as Sports Minister.”
