What a farce. The judiciary is obviously not fit for purpose. I can only imagine the anguish for all involved. Got a bad feeling on this one. Been watching from afar and it's seems they might wriggle of the hook.
100% right but we all knew that long ago. It's equally bad for those who are accused though. I think most readers believe that the four accused in this case are guilty, but just imagine if they weren't. They allegedly committed the crime in December 2019, and they are still in prison awaiting the completion of their trial three years later. And three years in any Dominican prison ain't no walk in the park, they are hell holes. We have politicians accused of serious corruption who have been in prison for over a year awaiting trial and, in the case of the ex president's brother, he has now been released to be on house arrest while he keeps waiting for his trial. And we have a new prison which was built to replace an old one (which was / is one of the most scariest places in the world) and the guy in charge of the money for building it syphoned so much into his back pocket that he is also in prison himself now. So yes, the judiciary and penal system are a complete mess.
