Dominican Republic’s Power Company has 2 mafias, Energy czar says  - State-owned Power Companies (CDEEE) Celso Marranzini on Thursday denounced that a “mafia” of internal contractors works against the system, and another that tampers with meters, which contribute to losses as high as 40 percent.

He said experienced technicians have been contracted to thwart fraud, and have managed to increase revenue and lowered expenses. He justified the hiring of the Chilean experts, “who’ll contribute to the organization’s stability and eliminate losses.”

He said the external mafia “monstrously” fixes the meters to commit frauds and warned those who get caught have just two choices” pay for the stolen energy or go to court.

Marranzini, interviewed on Telemicro Channel 5, said the CDEEE coordinates actions focused on penalizing fraud cases, from which “a few will e taken to jail for committing these frauds.”
