  • Quake rattles Dominican Republic


    Santo Domingo.- A moderate tremor of 5.3 magnitude has rattled the entire Dominican Republic, at around 5:32am local time, whose epicenter was located 17 kilometers south-southeast of the city of San Jose de Ocoa, at a depth of 10 kilometers.

    The tremor shook doors and windows for around 30 seconds, startling people to scurry out of bed.

    Emergency Operations Center director Juan M. Mendez said there are no reports of damages or injuries thus far, although cracks in structures have been reported in the country's south region.

    Jose Mateo, on the phone from the town of Fundacion, in the southern city of Bani, said his house under construction “has some cracks,” with no major damages.

    The geologist Osiris de Leon said since the tremor’s epicenter was inland, no tsunami warnings were issued. Interviewed by the program El Dia on Channel 11, the expert said the tremor was also felt in Haiti, where a 7.5 magnitude earthquake devastated the capital, Port-au-Prince on January 12, 2010.

    Eugenio Polanco, director of the Santo Domingo State University UASD Institute of Seismology stressed that there’s no possibility of a tsunami, as the social media report.

    He said two faults converge in the area of the quake, and noted similar tremors in 1980 and 1990. “There have been several tiny replicas from the tremor, but this is a normal result.”

    THE REPORT FROM THE US GEODETIC SURVEY:

    Event has been reviewed by a seismologist. Magnitude 5.3 Date-Time Thursday, January 05, 2012 at 09:35:29 UTC Thursday, January 05, 2012 at 05:35:29 AM at epicenter.

    Time of Earthquake in other Time Zones Location 18.422°N, 70.419°W Depth 10 km (6.2 miles) Region DOMINICAN REPUBLIC.

    Distances 55 km (34 miles) W of SANTO DOMINGO, 75 km (46 miles) ENE of Barahona.



    Quake unleashes rockslides, cuts off southern town


    Santo Domingo.- The Emergency Operations Center (COE) reported that the tremor felt 5:35am Thursday caused cracks in at least eight constructions in the southern mountain city of San José de Ocoa.

    COE director Juan Manuel Méndez said they’ve received information that traffic on the road to and from the community of El Pinar, Azua province, has been cut off on rockslides.

    The official also reported rockslides in the Southern Highway in the span near the community El Numero, adding that emergency crews were sent to work to restore traffic on those roads quickly.

  • UK hushed top fugitive’s presence in Dominican Republic

    Santo Domingo.- Multimillionaire British fraudster Michael Brown has been arrested in the Dominican Republic resort of Punta Cana after going on the run, say unnamed local police officials quoted by UK news sources.

    DT learned of the mysterious case when contacted by a British newspaper which sent reporters to the country, and were surprised that the local authorities weren’t aware that Brown had been living in the country for several years, even going into various types of businesses.

    They were also surprised that the UK authorities had yet to make a formal request for the fugitive’s apprehension.

    Brown was sentenced in his absence to seven years in jail after being convicted of fraud at Southwark Crown Court in 2008.

    He donated about Stg2.4 million ($A3.65 million) to the Liberal Democrats ahead of the 2005 general election - its largest donation to date.

    British news source telegraph.co.uk reports that Police in the Dominican Republic are now searching for the British fugitive, backed by a threat to deport him because he is in the country on false documents.

    But they expressed dismay that British police never told them that Brown was on the Caribbean island.

    The con man was in custody on unrelated charges for three months this year, but freed because they had no idea he was a wanted man.

    "We cannot deal with what we do not know," said the judge who jailed him.

  • Dominican Republic presidential candidate targets reporters

    Santo Domingo.- Channel 16 TV reporter Joahnna Pérez denounced Thursday that the bodyguards of opposition PRD party presidential candidate Hipolito Mejía “roughed her up” while covering his campaign, and becomes the fourth journalist in just three weeks to complain of rough treatment by the ex President’s security personnel.

    “I got close to Mejía and wanted to ask him a question, but the bodyguards pushed me, but I insisted and then they pushed me a third time that I fell to the ground, and couldn’t get up because of the multitude. I was trampled,” she said, as cameras from other channels caught the melee on tape.

    The most recent incident has now become part of a pattern which has marred Mejia’s image since holding office, when his then security detail chief, then active Army general Pedro Julio Goico Guerrero “Pepe Goico” earned a reputation for treating reporters with aggression.


    Recent cases

    Two more reporters were “manhandled” by Mejia’s security in the Country Club La Vega Real (central) yesterday, according to news source bani.com.do.

    Ambiorix Ortega, of TV channels Vegateve, and Pepe de la Rosa, of Platinum, found themselves looking at the barrel of guns wielded by Mejía bodyguards, and affirmed they were physically mistreated, despite affirming that they are members of the party of the ex President, the PRD.

    Just three weeks ago, the TV journalist Gilbert Guzmán resigned from the SIN news program, in the wake of a controversy over the release of a video in which one of Mejía’s bodyguards is seen pushing him.

    Guzman said he resigned because of comments that he wanted to hide the video, and prevent jeopardizing the former chief executive’s presidential candidacy.


    In the National Palace


    During Mejia’s term in office, Goico was dubbed the President’s “mad dog” for his aggression against journalists, one incident even led to the firing of a video technician assigned to the National Palace Press Department.

  • Puerto Plata resurges on higher hotel occupancy

    Puerto Plata.- The resort city’s hotel personnel laid off during Dominican Republic’s low tourist season has been rehired as the substantial increase in tourists has boosted occupancy, said Julio Almonte, spokesman for the Playa Dorada Hotels, Condominiums and Business Owners Association.

    The hotelier, quoted by listin.com.do, said a rising demand for human resources accelerated the process to reinstate the employees in the Costa Dorada and Cofresí hotels.

    As published by the Central Bank the hotel occupancy rate for the destination formed by Puerto Plata, Cofresí, Maimón, Sosúa and Cabarete fell to 53% during 2011, and dipped to critical levels in the low season.

    The fact that Puerto Plata was the tourism destination which posted the worse hotel occupancy during that period brought extreme uncertainty to local hoteliers, forcing layoffs of thousands of workers.

    Almonte, who’s also manager of the Celuisma Tropical hotel, said the hoteliers concentrated in attracting more tourists in the high season and will continue with the strategy.

  • Caves no escape for thugs from Police “shrew” agents, diariolibre.com reports

    Santo Domingo.- Forced to deal with a sweeping advance in the types of new crimes during the last five years ago, the National Police created the Los Topos (shrews) Unit, whose agents are highly trained to fight drugs and other felonies especially in caves and the maze of alleyways in barrios of the Capital.

    Reported by news source diarilibre.com, the “shrews” are specialized in the pursuit and capture of thugs that hide in the countless nooks and crannies in the slums of Guachupita, Gualey, Los Guandules, Simon Bolivar, La Cienega, and others known for their high crime rates.

    Though born with the Democratic Security Plan in 2005, it was last year when current Police chief Jose Polanco realized the urgent need to organize them into a company, with orders to train new agents to become “Topos.”

    The Unit’s 74 men and women agents patrol alleys in groups of 10, venture into the numerous dark caves along the Ozama and Isabela riverbanks even in the dead of night, terrorizing the criminals.

    Created by general Juan Gerónimo Brown, the shrews program will be expand to the other cities and currently trains 200 in the Duarte Riot Police Camp, to be ready in next the three months.

    On a daily basis the Topos arrest gun thieves and drug pushers who try to escape via the river, in the narrowest alleys and the caves, and from November to December recovered nearly 100 firearms and seized nearly 1.7 kilos of different types of drugs, and arrested nearly 150 fugitives.

  • Indians pitcher Fausto Carmona arrested in the D.R. using fake name

    Indians pitcher Fausto Carmona was arrested Thursday in the Dominican Republic, charged with using a fake identity.

    According to Dominican police (via spokesman Maximo Baez Aybar on Twitter), Carmona's real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia, and the pitcher is actually 31 years old, not 28.

    The police said Carmona (or Hernandez) was arrested when he went to the American consulate to renew his visa. The police said they were working in cooperation with the consulate.

    It's not yet clear what charges Carmona (or Hernandez) will face, or what effect this will have on his contract with the Indians. The Indians picked up the pitcher's $7 million option for 2012 in October.

    The Indians signed Carmona (or Hernandez) in 2000, when his documents showed that he was 17 years old. Actually, according to the charge, he was 20 years old then, and was 25 when he debuted in the big leagues.

    Pitching as Carmona, the right-hander was a 19-game winner in 2007, when the Indians went to the playofs. He's been inconsistent since then, and was 7-15 with a 5.25 ERA in 2011.

    The Carmona/Hernandez arrest comes on the heels of the arrest last summer of Juan Carlos Oviedo, who was pitching for the Marlins under the name Leo Nunez. Oviedo returned to the Dominican to face charges, and while he has signed a $6 million contract for 2012, he is still working through legal issues that would allow him to return to the United States.

    The Marlins put Oviedo on the restricted list, and he won't be paid unless he is able to return.

  • Green Bay, WI., to seek out Santiago as Sister City

    Santo Domingo.- The Green Bay City Council has approved a proposal to forge a relationship with the country’s second biggest city, Santiago, greenbaypressgazette.com reports, adding that it’s “pursing a new sister city relationship,” with the major agro and industrial urban area.

    It said the city of Santiago “is home to 2 million people, a tropical climate and professional baseball and basketball teams,” although its population has yet to reach 1.0 million, while the entire province is likely around 1.1 million.

    “Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt supports the move as a way of promoting economic development and trade opportunities,” greenbaypressgazette.com said.
