Colonel masterminded general’s corruption scheme
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Police Col. Rafael Núñez de Aza was the financial mastermind of the corruption network organized by Adán Cáceres to defraud money from the treasury, the Justice Ministry says.
According to the filing he served as Financial Officer of the Presidential Security Corps, which allowed Cáceres to maintain a discretionary and lax control of the funds, some RD$3.0 billion during the eight years.

IN-GGR-2020-004088,”
