|DominicanToday.com - The journalist Esteban Rosario, who produces the popular program Detras de las Noticias (behind the news), yesterday denounced a criminal plot against him and his family, by what he called powerful sectors which presumably paid to hired killers to assassinate him.
He said the threats prompted him to meet with North Region Police Commander Juan Ramon de la Cruz Martinez yesterday. He said the official received him and one of his daughters. “The Police called me to inform me and confirm that a hit man had been paid to kill me, that the money was already given to the individual to commit the criminal action.”
Rosario affirmed the car that belongs to his daughter was recently gurgled and she later received a threatening phone call similar to those made to him, adding that the Police knows who was paid to kill him.
