Dominican ruling party leader-cum spy chief
Santo Domingo.- The technical delegate of the Dominican ruling party (PLD) before the Central Electoral Board said Friday that he took a leave without pay from his position as deputy director of the National Investigations Department (DNI) ).
Robert de la Cruz said that on Thursday he requested a furlough from those functions of September 23, when PLD presidential candidate Gonzalo Castillo “appointed me as his technical delegate on the Board.”
He said his decision aims to avert a “conflict of interest with the Board.”
He added that such a leave is without pay as established by law.
