Washington’s “corrupt” label could cost Dominicans US$200M
DominicanToday.com -  The Dominican Anticorruption Alliance, ADOCCO, warned Sunday that the U.S. State Department’s report disclosed Friday would keep Dominican Republic from accessing funds from the Account of the Millennium.

 

In the said report, which cites violation of human rights, killings and torture by police, subhuman prison conditions, a marked increase in people trafficking, violence against women, discrimination against minorities and a little enforcement of labor laws, stresses "instances in which security forces acted independently of civil control" last year.

But what most concerns ADOCCO is the report’s affirmation that "Corruption is generalized in the Dominican Republic,” an element it says would shut the doors to benefits of nearly US$200 million, from the Account of the Millennium.
