SANTO DOMINGO.- Former Cincinnati Reds star pitcher Jose Rijo was indicted on charges of money laundering linked to alleged drug trafficker Matias Avelino Castro (Joaquin Almeyda), accused of ordering the killing of the journalist José Silvestre, an underworld murder that rocked Dominican Republic .

 The Justice Ministry’s Anti-money laundering Unit says Rijo organized a several property transactions with Avelino, despite knowing the illicit origin of his partner’s funds.

 The San Pedro Office of the Prosecutor also asked that bond be set at RD$20 million, a ban on travel, and a month visit to the courthouse against the former Major League All-Star.

 The indictment filed on Friday says Silvestre (Gajo) was kidnapped in August last year and shot twice, and his body found on a country road in San Pedro.

 Silvestre, editor of the magazine "Voz de la Verdad” (Voice of Truth), had blamed the now fugitive Avelino for ordering the death of Ramon Antonio Herrera (Momón), in La Romana, during an alleged turf war among members of the drug organization “Cartel del Este.”

No he is dominican, look at his mouth running.

Besides take credit, mostly all dominicans are thiefs, killers, drug dealers, swindlers, know it all's, loud, country, lazy, nosy and prostitutes. I said mostly. That means there are a few, very few good people.

"Money Laundering"

That's nothing according to Little Rickey; it’s a developing economy’s best friend!

Use your medical card and your prayers for yourself and them, its apparent you all need it. The truth hurts. You can say all you want about other nacionality, but the minute someone writes something that is the truth about your people and is printed, your panties get all tight. Read the story again and deal with it.

You can take the Dominican out of the DR, but you can't take the DR out of the Dominican.

Inbred entitlement moron.

I suppose the first question is when will this go to court ,, then we will have some understanding of what the defence is seeking as far as bail is concerned or if they will argue that there is no case .I have forgotten if anyone has been charged so far with the murder of the journalist in broad daylight in la Romana and with witnesses who saw that the car was a Ford Explorer. Later we know that it was rented
At that time everyone was trying to blame the prosecutor in la Romana for the murder ,,but still rumours persistthat the man behind it all is a politician in the capital

@raulm,..I understand what you're saying, however, do not say mostly all Dominicans. Because not allof us are like that. It sounds to me like you just hate Dominicans point blank...if your Dominican, it sounds like like you are a " vende patria". Im a proud Dominican, I understand that many of my people are corrupted and bad but on the other hands there are many that are not that way. Like me, and possibly, like you. But don't hate your nationality, because your just selling out when you do that.

I only hate a thief no matter what nationality. but i am, just stating the facts. Now if you can't handle that, it's your problem. That's why every dominican is looking for away out and the same reason you left. If your that PROUD go back and live and help the people because they have problems. Somebody had to say it, so don't get angry with me because the los gente son asi. yo no tengo miedo con ustedes e puedo decir lo que quiero... live with it, ya
