Dominican Republic: President Abinader expresses outrage at the murder of evangelical pastors

Santo Domingo.- President Luis Abinader on Wednesday expressed his indignation, anger and great pain at the death of two evangelical pastors at the hands of National Police agents and warned that he will not tolerate anyone being above the law or being able to use it at will.

“Human life is sacred in this government. And we are not going to tolerate violence arising from the very forces that must fight it,” said the president.

Abinader announced that he gave precise instructions to the Minister of the Interior and Police, Jesús Vázquez, for the immediate cancellation of the agents involved in the incident.

The Head of State also instructed that all necessary support and help be provided to the families of the victims, with whom he communicated by phone and expressed his sympathy and condolences.

“In this country there is no room for impunity, arbitrariness or abuse. For anyone or with anyone,” Abinader pointed out and emphasized: “We cannot undo the damage caused, but I can assure you that justice will be done.”
