Lead ‘Octopus’ case prosecutor regrets releases

Santo Domingo.- The Head of the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for the Persecution of Administrative Corruption (Pepca), Wilson Camacho Monday night regretted that for the defendants in the ‘Octopus’ case, Alexis Medina, Fernando Rosa, Wacal Vernavel Méndez, and José Dolores Santana, Judge Deiby Timoteo Peguero has changed the pretrial detention for house arrest.

“The decision made by the court contains a regrettable message, that the complexity of these processes is not understood,” Camacho said.

He said that the 48 cases the Public Ministry is presenting are unprecedented in the Dominican Republic.

Dude you guys have nearly 20 months investigating these while they remained in jail. If you can’t find evidence in 20 months why even bring the case up. They have spent the most time in pre-detantion than any other person whom had been accused of corruption. So next time make sure that have all of the ducks lined up before bringing a case against somebody. Or maybe work on one and then move to the other.
