Quartering the military draws surprise nationwide
Santo Domingo.- Surprise nationwide has been the reaction to Defense minister, Rubén Paulino’s order on Mon. to quarter the military, despite the lack of a threat to public safety that merits the measure.
Paulino’s questioned measure could be an “exaggerated” response to a protest by grassroots groups against the high fuel prices starting 4:30pm today, along several thoroughfares streets and avenues of the capital.
Outlet diariolibre.com reports that people called the unusual measure “exaggerated.”
Some warn that the situation would be justified only if law enforcement agencies had detected a subversive plan behind the protests, and cautioned against “fishing in troubled waters.”
