    Default Hotels have 60 days to install cameras

    computer translation:

    After cases in hotels Tourism gives 60 days to install security cameras

    This was reported by MITUR in a circular signed by the minister Francisco Javier García

    Diario Libre - DOMINICAN REPUBLIC 05/06/2019, 12:40 PM

    The Ministry of Tourism (MITUR) granted a period of 60 days to hotel establishments in the Dominican Republic to install surveillance cameras, as ordered by Resolution No. 43-08 of the entity, regarding the latest events that have been submitted to the international scrutiny the security situation in the tourist poles of the nation.

    This was reported by MITUR in a circular signed by the Minister Francisco Javier García, which warns that the failure to observe this measure could lead to the withdrawal of the operating license, "independently of any other measure that may be applicable or pertinent".

    The content of the document, which was signed on Tuesday, June 4, is aligned with the ordinances of Decree No. 818-03, on the Functioning of Hotel Establishments.

    The decision was made after an American tourist, Tammy Lawrence-Daley, reported that she was brutally beaten at a resort in Punta Cana.

    Added to this case is the death of the husbands Edward Nathael Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, whose bodies were found in a room at the Bahia Principe hotel, located in the tourist complex Playa Nueva Romana.

    As I posted before surveillance cameras are probably not common in the residential areas of the resorts.

    Every year at this time, the Ministerio de Turismo comes up with some ridiculous idea to get businesses to spend money after high season. I have never ever seen a security camera at a resort yet.

    There are plenty - and how the Nigerian man who choked a Dominican mother of 4 to death is Sosua recently was ID'd carrying her body out the front door. So it can protect Dominican guests too.

    Even some small colmados have them

    That place is a resort? Also it was the lobby, not the residential areas.

    You haven't been to enough resorts - they are ubiquitous in many places. Maybe they are hidden, don't work or are just 'dummies' but look around next time you go to an AI or any hotel

    Can you post some photos of them at AIs, in the residential areas?
