    I guess the 200 pesos p*ssed the thief off ?
    But a nice wallet ? Maybe he showed the photos off to claim he has gringo friends.

    You didn't need to pay - huh ??

    I think residents and citizens don't pay anything....

    Anybody confirm that ?
    Besides my Dominican friends who say they pay zero at the Fiscalia

    No charge. To the best of my knowledge. Good lawyers exist as well,

    Exactly. The last lawyer I would trust would be the related to the girl I am banging.

    I've had two separate very positive experiences with the fiscal here in Sosua. Both commercial cases ...one when I bought a new motorcycle and one with a shipper. It is a bit chaotic but both times I was very impressed with the Fiscal, the process and happy with the results. Other then the 300 pesos I paid each time to the process server it did not cost me anything.

    I had a good experiecne with the Sosua fiscal. A guy was contracted to clean up our neighbourhood and chop down a dead coconut tree. My car was parked right next to this tree and he didn't make any effort to contact me to move it. He got out his chainsaw and what with the properties of gravity, it came down..........on my car! My neighbour's Haitian gardener saw it happen and came round to my house to tell me what happened. By this time the contractor had disappeared.

    We went to the local fiscal and lodged the complaint. The aguacil was dispatched to issue the summons. And then a strange thing happened. The contractor sent one his his Haitian workers to threaten our neighbour's Haitian worker!

    At the time of the hearing, there was four of us. A white gringo, two Haitians and a Dominican. The fiscal awarded damages against the Dominican and he was forced to pay for the repair of my car and warned not go anywhere near (orden de alejamiento) of the Haitian.

    Oh and BTW, the only thing it cost me was 300 pesos in petrol money for the aguacil.

    I've been saying it here for years. The police in this country know who does what
    and its tolerated (to an extent) until one of them screws up and hurts or kills their victim.
    Anyone who disagrees with me does not understand the way things work down here.
