Miami, -- Prosecutors Thursday said USD 170 million is owed to investors at a fraud trial involving two Canadian businessmen in a U.S and a third defendant in the case, former Dominican minister of tourism Victor Cabral.

 

 

The former Dominican minister of tourism Victor Cabral, is currently under house arrest after being convicted of charges related to "fleecing" a company involved in tourism development, the Maimi Herald reported.

 

Arrest warrant issued against ex Minister of Tourism

The National District sentencing judge issued an arrest warrant against ex Tourism minister Victor Cabral Friday morning, to serve a one year jail sentence ordered by the National District Second Collegiate Court.

Saulo Alexis Isabel Diaz issued the warrant to the Police, after the Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s sentence, sending Cabral to Najayo prison for one year, and increased the damages awarded to the Cap Cana Group.

Cabral was found guilty of committing fraud when he was Cap Cana’s executive director.
