Dominican Republic: President Abinader warns, “whoever commits an illegal act will not be protected by anyone”

SANTO DOMINGO. – The President of the Republic, Luis Abinader, warned that whoever commits an illegal act will not be protected by anyone due to the judicial operations that the Public Ministry has initiated against former officials.

The head of state expressed himself in these terms this Wednesday when addressing his government officials.

“When I promised that we would have an independent and autonomous justice, I did it with all conviction and up to its ultimate consequences. I did not know nor do I know any details of the judicial operations that are open or those that may be opened in the future, ”said Abinader.

The president added that “the Public Ministry has total freedom to investigate and bring to justice any file that involves any action against the patrimony of the Dominicans.”

The governor asked the officials not to create a “circus of persecution, nor a spectacle of infamy dragging us all through the mud, because justice is not revenge. And we cannot, because of the responsibility of the positions we hold, divide the country or polarize it.”
