Santo Domingo.- For her strong track record at the helm of the consumer protection agency, battling against vested interests in defense of Law 358-05 on Consumer Rights Protection, more than 200 not-for-profit organizations are proposing Altagracia Paulino for the vacant post of Public Defender (Ombudsman).

They say that Paulino, director of the National Consumer Rights Protection Agency (ProConsumidor), has made her mark thanks to her defense of health and what Dominicans consume, succeeding in placing her institution as one of the most credible state entities in the Dominican Republic.

The organizations endorsing Paulino, including neighborhood associations, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), mother’s associations, service entities, drivers’ entities, sports association and religious bodies see Paulino as a genuine representative to serve as Public Defender.

Their document of support was delivered to the director of the Chamber of Deputies Representation Center, Olimpia Méndez, by leaders Ana Hilda Nova, of the Women in Development Association; Roberto Abreu, Rhina Febles annd Jesús Colón, among others.

Such bull sh-t- Why did she not name the manufacture of the tainted salamis. She was bought off.

I thought her work in the salami affair was very ordinary to say the least . It seemed that there was some proof against some producers but she destroyed the businesses of nearly all producers . She could have done a much fairer job .
Now to appoint her as head of the Ombudsman seems strange as her first clients may be honest companies that she helped to ruin
