    Which public work projects was this company responsible for here in the DR? Maybe the bribes were worth it and they really committed a public service in the public works department.
    Hell, the construction business all over the world, especially the US region of New York-New Jersey has been rigged since Day 1. Even the nice little places nobody talks about has people that have had their pockets lined. Just the facts.

    Ditto on that Amigo. Former mayor of Montreal and other cronies on trial or convicted of taking bribes from construction companies with mafia underpinnings. There has been an ongoing provincial inquiry into the depth of bribery in Quebec for over a year now. The more that dig, the worse it gets.*

    And that's when and where they choose to "dig". Bid rigging is the 2nd oldest profession in the world. If it gets the job done correctly and on time so be it.

    Medina says he will investigate the payoffs and has set up committees to look into the matter. What a joke!!!!!! This is the way business is done in the DR. The rich get richer at the expense of the working class. Who will be the sacrificial lamb in all of this. Someone in the DR Gov. will have to take the fall. Who knows? Gov. officials are also good at C.Y.A.

    They have it down to a science. It's pretty much an economic sector in the DR. I have known many political activist in the DR and the driving force is not change, but the opportunity to rob the coffers or get their piece of the bribe stream.

    LT knows the deal. Watch after the next election how many cases of corruption come up. The bigwigs will skate and some lowly underling director will take the fall.

    Only reason this happened was because the new prosecutor or judge got greedy and wants more payola. It will settle the case and plead to some minor charges after more bribes. Pay a small fine for a company that size. White collar crime pays!

    What was the bribe when we bought the drug planes from Brazil? Always wondered. You know they did it. Why else choose Brazil for the plane purchase? The best planes at the best price or the biggest under the table pay off?
