At least seven Dominican prosecutors involved in corrupt network

Santo Domingo, Aug 4 (Prensa Latina) The Attorney General's Office of the Dominican Republic informed that at least seven prosecutors are involved in a network dedicated to eliminating or adulterating more than eight thousand criminal records in exchange for bribes.

Among those implicated in Operation Gavilan are also administrative employees of the Public Prosecutor’s Office and members of the National Police, who for years were dedicated to erasing official information on crimes related to drug trafficking, gender violence, kidnapping, homicide, money laundering, among other serious crimes.

Last night, that Office requested to the National Office of Permanent Attention of the National District that the case be declared complex, while coercive measures are expected to be announced this Friday for a dozen officials of the Attorney General’s Office.

“They used their position as employees with access to the criminal records database to commit illicit actions,” argues the request for the imposition of coercive measures by the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

According to that agency, the procedure they used consisted of the request for expungement, consultation, price, payment in cash or transfer, suppression of registration, issuance of certificate of no criminal record and “postage” to leave the country.

“They benefited high-profile career criminals who provided a permanent service to them and members of their structure in exchange for considerable amounts of bribes,” the document describes.
