Dominican Republic: Odebrecht assures that its executives want to testify in court

Santo Domingo.– Brazilian construction company Odebrecht S.A. assures that its executives have been willing to testify in the legal process that is being carried out in the Dominican Republic, that it has paid US$60 million to the treasury and that it has fulfilled “in time, content and methodology” its obligations assumed with the Dominican State through the leniency agreement reached by the company with the Dominican Justice in March 2017.

Through a statement published in Diario Libre, it also affirms that the company has an “unequivocal determination” to continue complying with the agreement and claims to be confident in the way the Public Ministry acts, in compliance with the constitutional norms established by the state of law and legal security in the Dominican Republic.

The construction company refers to the statements of the head of the Anticorruption Office (Pepca), Wilson Camacho, who on December 21 declared that the Public Ministry is studying the possibility of canceling the agreement established with Odebrecht for alleged non-compliance on the part of the company.

Camacho’s statements came after the suspension of the hearing of the trial against Ángel Rondón, Víctor Díaz Rúa, Tommy Galán, Andrés Bautista, Conrado Pittaluga and Juan Roberto Rodríguez, all accused of receiving the US$92 million in bribery that the Brazilian construction company admitted to having paid in the country.
