Santo Domingo.- The scandal involving U.S. senator Bob Menendez, despite fizzling out after allegations by the supposed prostitutes he had “orgies” with turned out to be scripted accusations, has left a “huge mess" in Dominican Republic, whose Catholic Cardinal called the reported  “interrogation” by FBI agents, would be an unqualified intromission and abuse against the country.”

“If that is true, it’s about an unqualified abuse that the United States came here to investigate persons in the country, without the support and the presence of justice and of the Dominican people,” Lopez said.

Cesar Medina, Dominican ambassador in Spain, called the scandal’s aftermath a “huge mess with major impact on United States power circles,” and that the plot also seeks to tarnish a family of prominent attorneys, headed by Marino Vinicio (Vincho) Castillo, head of the Government’s Ethics Commission.

Medina noted that Menendez, who chairs the powerful U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called for a "serious and thorough" State Department probe into the FBI’s alleged interrogation in the Dominican Republic, and affirmed that two senior National Police generals could be fired in the wake of the incident. “It’s an attempt to compromise the moral character with an interrogation conducted in an ??improper and illegal manner.”

“It’s also worth noting that Justice minister Francisco Domínguez isn’t part of that investigative commission. The explanation could be that Vincho Castillo makes him responsible for the plot against his family,” the diplomat said.

Medina adding that he FBI interrogated two domestic workers of the Casa de Campo villa of prominent eye doctor Salomon Melgen, a Menendez political contributor, centered on the Senator’s alleged “orgies” with underage prostitutes.

That disgusting excuse of a Senator will be rooting in jail soon along with his Dominican buddy.

The PURPLE WAGONS are circling around "Bicho" Castillo, because if the FBI takes him down the whole PLD will be sucked down in the Vortex.

All this anti-FBI rhetoric is the equivalent of Manuel Noriega's Slapping of the machete on the podium before the 82nd Airborne gave him a ride to the Federal "Hilton" in Miami.

This is a tempest in a teapot. The Dominican authorities should be more concerned about in house reform that will plug the holes that allowed the interrogation to take place without proper protocol.

The FBI came to ask questions and the DR opened the door. Don't blame the FBI.

I have to agree with zooma. To blame the FBI because the DR officials where careless and irresponsible brown nosers, is the same as to blame Barrick, for shoving that contract down our throats.
It's the DR's responsibility to guard for our own best interests, not others.
