Dominican Republic: Ángel Rondón says Jean Alain offered him an agreement to accuse “two or three” in the Odebrecht case

The main defendant for the US$92 million in bribes from Odebrecht, Angel Rondón Rijo, assured this Thursday that the ex-prosecutor general, Jean Alain Rodríguez, offered him to reach an agreement to accuse “two or three” of the Party of the Modern Revolutionary (PRM) or else he would submit to him and “all” those betrayed by Marcos Cruz.

Speaking at the trial being held at the First Collegiate Court of the National District, Rondón said he refused that agreement because he had not bribed officials as required by the Public Prosecutor’s Office. This would have happened in March 2017, according to Rondón’s account.

The accused also assured that the ex-prosecutor manipulated what was said by Marco Vasconcelos Cruz. He recalled that, in principle, the Public Prosecutor’s Office accused only 14 people but left out 28 who were also mentioned.
