Colonel threatens reporters who cover airport drug cases - DNCD president Rolando Rosado announced Wednesday night an investigation of Lieutenant colonel Johan Liriano, just hours after the journalists denounced his alleged threats.


The official said he adopted the measure immediately after hearing of it in an evening radio program, but noted that he doubts that it’s about the lieutenant colonel.

"We’ve named a commission into the case denounced and we expect its report as soon as possible, not without first recognizing the journalists’ work to benefit Dominican society, who we consider our main allies on the war on narcotrafficking," Rosado said.

FILED EARLIER.- The head of the Antinarcotics Agency’s (DNCD) contingent at  Las Americas International Airport yesterday threatened to place the journalists who cover the terminal in drug trafficking cases, if they continue publishing information on the confiscation of drugs before the entity discloses them.

Lieutenant colonel Johan Liriano made the warning when reporters from various media went to warehouse #3 of the freight terminal, site of another case of drugs seized.


“I’m an arbitrary man and can easily put you in any drug case if you continue with that practice,” the senior officer said in a threatening tone. The official, in an effort at intimidation, went to the reporters accompanied by several bodyguards and other members of military assigned to the airport security agency (CESA), demanding that they abandon the area.
