Eastern politicos try to steal assets seized in U.S Medicaid fraud, investigator says
DomingoToday.com - The head of the Justice Ministry’s Anti-money Laundering Unit revealed Monday that `prominent' political leaders in the East region are using the properties seized from the Benítez brothers.


German Miranda said he awaits the result of Higüey prosecutor Lucas Evangelists Perez’s investigation of three politicians he affirms are using the properties seized form Carlos, Jose and Luis Enrique Benítez, declared fugitives on charges of laundering more than US$110 million they swindled from the U.S Medicare.

Miranda said the politicians, whom he didn’t mention, figure as alleged owners of the assets seized from the fugitives, and have even tried to take over the properties with forged titles.

He said those who claim ownership of the Benítez brothers’ assets are the main suspects in the case of the mafia which places irregular liens on tourist resorts in the East.

The official said the properties seized from the Benítez are worth US$50 million, of which the United States yielded 50%, announced U.S. ambassador Raul Izaguirre in May.
