Bus owners charge govt. officials, company of embezzlement
Santo Domingo.- Dozens of bus owners and drivers on Thursday picketed the Office of the Anticorruption Prosecutor (PEPCA) to file a complaint against Industry and Commerce minister Nelson Toca, a former minister and a private company, for alleged money laundering.
Bus owners union (Fenatrano) boss Juan Hubieres, filed the complaint accompanied by a group of protesters who waved banners with shouts of “justice be done.”
The lawsuit accuses Toca, former minister José Del Castillo, and Coastal Pretroleum Dominicana executives of money laundering, embezzlement and other charges through price fixing in the sale of propane gas (LPG).
