Santo Domingo.- The Odebrecht US$94.0 million bribery case begins today a new stage in the jurisdiction with a totally renewed Attorney General’s Office (PGR) that has committed to strongly combat corruption.

In this new context, Wilson Camacho, characterized as one of the most energetic prosecutors of the team that has handled the case from the beginning, is now the head of the Anticorruption Office (Pepca), a body that was strengthened with 19 prosecutors.

Added to this is the fact that on August 16, Tommy Galán concluded his term as a senator and lost his protection as legislator, which prompted the Supreme to decline his case, which will now be heard in the same court as codefendants with Ángel Rondón Rijo, Víctor José Díaz Rúa, Conrado Enrique Pittaluga Arzeno, Porfirio Andrés Bautista García and Juan Roberto Rodríguez Hernández.
