A good reason for foreigners to avoid owning a business in DR - sooner or later someone is going to invent a claim against you

Wait a minute, this is Dominican Republic's fault....
So if one starts a business in Dominican Republic, expect jail time....
Wow... I didn't know that.

I have seen worse situations in the restaurant industry in the NYC/NJ area. I don't think the country has anything to do with it. I also didn't post this to condemn Big Frank. Unlike the liberals in my beautiful Country the USA, I believe in innocence until proven guilty.

I would tend to agree, also from NYC metro area. Here, all you need is to have registered business corp, pay your ITBIS and your employees. No dr---, no money laundering, no procurement... and you can have a healthy, happy business.

And with that I still dream of opening & running a beach bar in Cabarete because with the stress & bull**** of inherited in owning a joint at least you are doing it in Paradise.

Is this "Big Frank" of Jose O'Shea fame?

Or another Big Frank?

How old is he? He doesn't look to be in the best of health.

Anxiously awaiting for the DR1 detectives, clairvoyants and those in the "know" to get to the REAL truth in this matter. Hoping they can do it in less than 500 posts.......but I doubt it.

Personally, I think there was alien abduction involved.

Anybody that knows anything about Dominican justice knows that it's very easy to put somebody in jail. Just a complaint from someone and the police will take you to jail (police station). I have no opinion on the ongoing dispute between Frank and Rocky. Both have been kind toward me and my friends. They certainly seem to be good guys and not crooks in the least.

Wait three months, and you can read about it on Amazon.

I guess this just goes to show that a foreigner/foreigner business relationship can crash and burn here just as easily as any other.
