Santo Domingo.- Cristian Pozo (El Matatan), a notorious alleged head of a ring of drug pushers in San Cristobal (south) paid RD$6.0 million for protection each month to the Police Precinct, Justice minister Francisco Domínguez revealed Thursday .

He said an investigation seeks to determine if all agents in San Cristobal were getting money from "Matatan," arrested by the National Drugs Control Agency (DNCD).

"We’re investigating to determine if San Cristobal’s entire staff is associated with Matatan," Dominguez said, and affirmed that drug pushers are directly behind most of Dominican Republic’s crimes.

The official, speaking during the opening of Justice Ministry community office in the Invivienda sector, Santo Domingo East, said it’s shameful that police agents, “who are supposed to fight crime, become their allies.”

He said Matatan pushed cocaine and other drugs, and the authorities confiscated two pickup trucks, two shotguns, a revolver, several cell phones, among other evidence.

Of course the drug pushers were protected. The police accepted the payments to look the other way or faced being eliminated.

Can anyone doubt the whole Precinct was not involved? With that amount of money being paid monthly it probably well exceeded the total salary cost there and you can be sure everyone was getting a cut or if they didn't they knew full well what was going on and turned a blind eye.

One of the most worrying things is that if all the police at San Cristobel were found to be corrupt ,there is absolutely no reason not to think that it is the same situation in the SE ,in San Pedro ,la Romana and Higuey which appear to be the main drug dealing areas And what about San Francisco ed Macoris where it is alleged the drug and extortion gangs frommexico and Colombia are holed up ..The police and justice system is totally rotten to the core
