    That's the other thing. I would have thought it was routine to ask for an ID(?).

    But those doing the questioning cannot speak english nor have common sense or any level of intelligence. For them its just a cash grab of sorts. Serve and protect does not exist here no matter how many locals and expats (with businesses) continue to say how wonderfully safe it is here. Its not the mini-bars that are the problem!

    I think that's it in a nutshell - zero common sense. You would think they would have learned their lesson after s similar incident in Cabarete about 3 years ago.

    If you've ever dealt with these muppets (PN) you'd
    understand. Many of them have no business having
    a position of authority.

    They are instructed to pick up any female who looks like she could be,in their eyes,a hooker.
    Not to think or ask for ID.
    They remove the phones and possessions and lock them up for the night in a concrete floor room with a bucket for up to twenty girls..
    There is no recourse,explanation,phone call, doctor,water or paperwork and no charges filed.In the morning they are released.

    As I said before,on one occasion they inadvertently picked up a girl from an influential family and had to quickly release her.
    One would think this would slow down the overzealous breach of human rights but had no effect whatsoever.

    The corps was formed to protect tourists but I doubt anyone really thinks this is protecting anyone.
    Merely following the Mayor's instructions.

    I'm not a 'monger' but consider that illegally detaining a law-abiding citizen simply walking on the street is an abomination even in a banana republic.

    Please don't come out with the "it's not your place,get used to it.Welcome to Paradise etc.homilies.- That's just tedious".

    This photo looks like the heavy lifting is done.

    Yes, it is almost finished. I walked through what will be the reception of the Marriott Ocean Club, the pool and seafront today.
    Unfortunately, when I wanted to take pictures a nice guy who seemed to be the manager appeared and said no pictures please.
    He told me that only a little more rocks will be added at the end of the current breakwater.

    It was even a strip of sand inside the «wanna be beach», interesting to see if/how that increases during the months/years to come.

    Nice property and buildings, and if they succeed to have their own private beach too.

    The giant trucks seem to have have stopped for now.

    Interesting precedent:-
    If all beaches in the DR are supposed to be public,I wonder if that goes on to apply to privately manufactured ones?
