Santo Domingo.- A senior leader of the pro-government PRSC party on Wednesday accused State-owned Housing Bank director Federico (Quiqui) Antún of taking his year’s entire of RD$12.0 million in advance, and that he has copies of the checks to prove it.

Humberto Salazar, who has worked in various government posts for years, and currently heads the Health Sector Reform Commission (CERSS), said he assumes Antun “blackmails” president Danilo Medina’s Administration

“So I ask my friend, president Danilo Medina, and (Banks superintendence) Rafael Camilo to act and explain to the country what occurred with the Housing Bank’s funds."

Salazar’s accusation comes just hours after Antun, also president of the PRSC, announced a political split with the ruling party (PLD).

"What I'm saying is that checks in the millions were written in December, one of them for more than 12 million pesos on behalf of Mr Federico Antún Batlle and I have a copy of that," revealed Salazar.

 "This has to be done before we talk about politics and all that kind of nonsense which is nothing more than clownishness," for which he refuses to be part of an institution which succumbs to it.

The also physician reiterated that he has all the papers that show how the Housing Bank’s funds were dilapidated, for which de won’t let Antun to now "come with a newspaper headline saying that the PRSC breaks with the PLD when none of the officials resign."

Interviewed on Derecho as Saber, the PRSC leader noted that the Housing Bank’s unrecoverable loans top RD$1.3 billion, “and most of those funds will not be collected because and will have to be assumed by the (State-owned)Reservas Bank."

Salazar said the situation violates all banking rules. "We all know how difficult it is for them to explain how they handle other people’s money... and then attempt to keep a person who has yet to provide explanations as to what took place there."

The latest denouncement adds to the mounting scandals in the Administration headed by Medina, whose once squeaky clean reputation has been eroding just into his second year in office.

Maybe Dr. Humberto Salazar can explain also, how come he has a diplomatic post, and lives in DR full time.
Quique Antun has a long history of questionable actions, so this new accusation should not surprise anyone.
Could it be that because the good doctor is a buddy of Carlos Morales, is performing as the attack dog, for the PRSC faction, in bed with the PLD and Don Carlos?
Danilo has to fire about 500 "do nothing diplomats", all from the PRSC at the ministry of foreign affairs.

I totally agre with generoso ..I was put in an embarrassing situation by telling the local ambassador in the office of external affairs ,,yes he callshimself aan ambassador ,, that the names of two men he tolf me were consuls in two seperate countries had actually died more than two years ago .The office in el Malecon did not even know that the embassy had closed in Bangkok . How can one man clean u p a mess that has been going on for decades without alienating his entire support and thus achieving nothing .. It must be so hard to implement so many changes and still keep party support ,because he must cutthe ground from under so many people .

Putting a fox guarding the hen house, is the equivalent of naming a "politician", from either of the three
major parties as the head honcho, of a state housing bank or savings and loan.
The preferred way the thievery is performed, by accepting real estate of dubious value, like empty lots outside the city, and bending rules to approve a loan for ten times or more the actual value. The appraisal if any, is doctored, and not audited, and once issued, the loan defaults after a few payments, or not at all.
Their luck is that the majority of the DR voting public, is functionally illiterate, and the corrupt keep fooling the masses with populism, tokens, empty promises, rum, and generosity cards.

Como es un ladronazo, Quique Antun tiene que estar metido con Guillermo Moreno de alguna forma..

Al igual que su alcahuete Joseano..

Todos los que estan fuera del PLD terminan en lo mismo..


Para el progreso:
Leonel 2016-3000!
