Ex Dominican Justice chief vows to jail corrupt officials, even his own party’s
DominicanToday.com – Former Justice Minister and ruling PLD party presidential nomination hopeful Francisco Domínguez Brito on Tuesday said he wants to become a statesman to wage war without quarter on corruption, cronyism and dishonesty which in his view are leading the nation to precipice.

“If I am President of the Republic, and I regret to say it and do so with pain, there’ll be people in the PLD who will have to go to prison. Be them of the PLD or anyone, the one who makes a mistake, the one who violates the law, must assume their responsibility," he said.

The former Senator for Santiago province said if there are people here who feel like men "to take money from the State, they must also be man enough to go behind bars," , without needing fending, without humiliating…you were simply mistaken and you must be responsible for what you did."

“Dominican society must be intolerant against the cases of corruption, otherwise this is going to crumble, and democracy will be destroyed," said Domínguez in the interview with Pablo McKinney on CDE. "I’m confident that I’ll be the candidate.”


Dominican Watchdog Note:

Is this the joke of the week? That man can't be serious! When he was justice minister nobody was jailed for extensive corruption, so why should that change if he became President. NOBODY just becomes president in Latin American. Most Presidents starts with little or nothing and within a few years they are all multi-millionaires in dollars! The real power of the Latin countries sits with the rich families running the huge local businesses like monopols. The name of the game is to steal as much as possible as fast as possible and ensure that those who voted you into power get their part for doing so, and if at the same time you can hire most of your family to various goverment positions you have been "AN EXCELLENT MINISTER OR PRESIDENT" and after a certain period the opposition wants their turn of stealing and by doing so civil unrest is avoided in these poor countries. Sometimes the President get his hand so deep into the cookie jar that he don't want to leave and that's how dictators are created, rest assured that those who supports the dictator get their part of the cookies.
