It was the US that urged Dominican authorities to bust major ring

Santo Domingo.- Contrary to what local authorities have stated, it was the US that requested Dominican Republic’s cooperation with an investigation underway in that territory against the drug trafficking ring headed by César Emilio Peralta, “César el Abusador.”

The requirement was conveyed to the Dominican Justice Ministry on July 16, according documents related to the investigation, quoted by El Dia.

The request for cooperation comes just over a month after the name of César Peralta emerged after the attack against former Major League player David Ortíz, a case in which Dominican authorities didn’t involve.

The Justice Ministry’s probe uncovered a broad money laundering structure based mainly on discos where important, Dominican and Puerto Rican artists also performed.
