    Default Former Consul General Arrested in New York for Drug Dealing

    As posted within DR1 Daily News - Wednesday, 11 September 2019…..

    Former consul general to Jamaica arrested in New York for drug dealing

    Former Dominican government official Jeremías Jiménez Cruz, 50, is charged with conspiring to import cocaine into the United States and money laundering offenses.

    Jimenez was arrested on 6 September. His case has been assigned to New York's South District Court Judge Kimba M. Wood, the same judge who handled the Quirino Ernesto Paulino Castillo drug case.

    US Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said that Jiménez Cruz allegedly had used his high-level role in Dominican government to traffic large quantities of cocaine into the United States. "When senior foreign officials invidiously conduct illegal activity in the United States, this Office and our law enforcement partners will act swiftly and resolutely to bring them to justice," said the prosecutor.

    If convicted, Jiménez could receive a life sentence.

    The case explains that Jiménez Cruz began his diplomatic career in 2004 as vice consul for the Dominican Republic in Frankfurt, Germany. He remained there until 2008 when he was transferred to Jamaica as consul general.

    Foreign Relations Minister Miguel Vargas Maldonado said that he had no idea that Jeremías Jiménez Cruz trafficked in drugs and laundered money when he was in Jamaica. He said Jiménez Cruz was dismissed from the position in May 2017.

    Facing life in jail at the max.
    Judges and juries do not go easy on people who misuse their positions to facilitate breaking the law.
