    Two jokes going round:
    The names are in Portuguese
    They will release the nombres but still need to investigate the apellidos.

    Thankfully, he doesn't think the Green movement are going to allow that.

    There is a screaming cat in a bag and they want to keep it inside until it dies?

    Only in the DR.

    Maybe they are allowing people to purchase same day plane tickets.

    Naw, they are negotiating on who are going to be the fall guys, and the fall guys are negotiating how big the pay off and will it be house arrest......etc.

    I tend to believe that if names are released they will be fall guys as Bob stated. There is no reason why it should take this long..

    How long do you think translating thousands of documents from Portuguese to Spanish will take?

    And just think back, over enthusiastic prosecutions with public disclosures have done little in DR to date as far as convictions are concerned.

    Maybe that is all people really want? Names and no prosecutions.

    Let it play out and then we can really speculate.

    Exactly. Some are going to have to take the fall for big boys. What is sad in all of this is that services like electricity and water are still twentieth century and showing little improvement yet the PLD can siphon off money at the expense of the public. Nothing has changed in the DR in the last 30 years. Yes, the infrustructure has improved but the politics has not. This government wants to appear as a Democracy but at the cost of lining their own pockets. DR Gov officials have perfercted the art of bribe and cover up. It will get to a point that the public will no longer buy the BS and force changes. Let's hope this is a wake up call and violence will not be needed in enact change.

    Translating thousands of documents from Portuguese to Spanish in the DR. None of us are likely to still be alive by the time that is done.
