Dominican Republic: Condemned faked a health problem and managed to escape from prisons

Faking a health problem has become a good bait used by inmates in the country’s prisons to escape from prison, as Jorge Gabriel Báez Abreu recently did, who escaped from a clinic in Nagua as if it were a movie action.

The case of Báez Abreu occurred last week and since then the authorities have begun a search to find the whereabouts of the man who had been sentenced to 30 years in prison in 2015 for an attempted murder of two men in Puerto Plata.

According to the information from the authorities, the man had pretended to be sick, and when he was taken to the medical center, several armed men arrived at the place in a SUV, managing to strip their weapons to the custody of the condemned, and then escaped in half of a shootout.
