Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.- The Puerto Plata District Collegiate Court acquitted three Germans of the case of the gated community of La Mulata, Sosua, charged last year with attempted murder, resisting arrest and illegal possession of weapons.

The Germans Peter and Daniel Brunck and Solvey Isabela Ditric were arrested after the raid at La Mulata III, in October 2012, a case that let to the expulsion of several police officers and reprimands to commanders, on the alleged theft of RD$60 million in cash and of the foreigners’ belongings.

Judges Aloides Jesús Matias, Rosa Francia Liriano and Irina Ventura Castillo ruled for the Germans’ release because, citing violations to their rights as well as illegally obtained evidence during the raid.

Puerto Plata prosecutor Alba Núñez had asked the court to sentence them to 20 years in prison, in the case which claimed the life of the German Peter Ebert Demetrick, shot several times.

The moral of the story is let the Police rip you off all they want so you can be acquited of any wrong doing or planted evidence.

No.............

Regardless of guilt or innocence police failed to follow procedures, thought these guys were just common criminals and simply wanted to take advantage of the vulnerability. Its like cops stealing narcotics and money from drug dealers, two wrongs don't make a right. Just because the suspects have allegations of guilt does not give police the right or a free ticket to loot and raid what is still and remains private property.

And these were Germans with money, imagine what could have happened had it been Haitians. Do you think they would have been treated any differently?

The DR is one of those few countries who can claim to be both hell and heaven on earth.
