    An email is circulating locally with the supposed pictures of the yacht. The source of the information is the LNTD Digital news page, where Marino Zapete posts. See http://www.cafebambu.com
    Zapete is the journalist that achieved notoriety for reporting on the President's Jarabacoa house and nursery. Where did you read that IMF monies had been earmarked for the Armed Forces?

    Anyone read the news that they are going to buy 3 speed boats that cost a total of $6 million USD? This is to better patrol the coast.

    $2,000,000 USD must buy one hell of a speed boat.

    Don't forget, it will take at least 3 generals or 'admirals' to run these boats. And a port general to oversee the three. A new house for all 4. Plus jeepetas to get from the house to the dock. Dockage fees to the port. Fuel in advance. Then I'm sure there is a hefty commission on the sale to go to the PPH. Salaries for brokers. It adds up..lol
