Fraudster Luis Jose Asilis finally jailed in Dominican Republic
Unfortunately all the stranded foreign investors in his scam projects will probably never see a dime as the National District prosecutors announces arrest of Luis Jose Asilis for tax fraud and document forgery!


Businessman Luis Jose Asilis Elmudesi, owner of Autobuses Metro, was arrested for tax fraud and asset laundering. A tweet from the National District prosecutors’ office made the announcement on Friday, 17 August 2018. He is also accused of document forgery. 

On 16 July 2018, the Tax Agency (DGII) had closed the Metro bus terminal at Av. Wnston Churchill for tax violations. In 2015, Diario Libre had reported Asilis had been sent to justice by the DGII, and subsequently he would make a payment of RD$54 million to continue operating. 

The case against him had been disputed for around 8 years and the Diario Libre says Asilis negotiated with authorities to pay RD$170 million less than what he owed. 

Asilis reached the heading of Autobuses Metro through marriage to Rosa Cortina, daughter of the original founder, Ruben Cortina. 

A report in Acento features an EFE newswire that shares that Asilis is also chief executive officer at the Metro Metro Country Club in Juan Dolio, Metro Real Estate, Metro Tours, Metro Pac, and a leading shareholder in Lajun Corporation, the past administration company of the Duquesa garbage dump.
