Santo Domingo.- Herrera and Santo Domingo Province Industries Association (AEIH) president Antonio Taveras urged the government, the private sector and the political organizations to start legal proceedings against the truckers' association (Fenatrado).

According to a press release published by Diario Libre, Taveras described the truckers' association cargo monopoly as "one of the greatest distortions in the Dominican RepublicĀ“s economy."

The AEIH president also referred to the so-called unions as very powerful companies that impose their own law on the ports, subjecting business owners to their rates and conditions. "This group is used to ending their differences by appealing to violence, blackmail and vandalism."

Fenatrado president Blas Peralta is currently being held in pre-trial custody, accused of the murder of former Santo Domingo State University (UASD) rector Mateo Aquino Febrillet over a dispute on elected posts in San Cristobal province.
