    Default this is real and normal

    If this happen on a day to day basis to Dominican citizens why wont happen to the tourist?

    Like those criminal shipped back to the DR will sit still and do nothing to get money, everyone knows that this is normal in DR.
    Police asking for bribes is normal so, dont be affraid to let this to be posted
    and tourist being victim from sankies and cueros and tecatos c'mon.

    Politur denies the fact because they want to secure their jobs.

    Default Storm in a teacup

    It was old news....................... Same website advisory as 2005. So maybe date was changed on website but not the content?

    El Nacional, la voz de todos

    Confirma corresponde al 2005 el informe sobre riesgos de turistas en RD

    There should be a lot of egg on someone's face. Think it was El Caribe who broke this story first..................

    Default or maybe

    or maybe it was a cub AP reporter in DC. At least it IS old info but that never stops yellow journalism. the gov't website should at least be updated one would think.

    el gobierno en la manana raised this subject today and theyir conclusion was more or less: make DR safer for own citizens first...
    they managed to squeeze quite a lot of HDPs in before they got there thru...
