Santo Domingo.- The ruling party (PLD) spokesman in the Senate on Monday said he hopes a precedent would be set in the Dominican Republic on Odebrecht's bribes.

Rubén Darío Cruz (Ruben Toyota) said an investigation of the current and a former president would heighten Dominicans' confidence in justice. "If a current congressman, an ex-president and the current president are investigated, the population will increase its confidence towards justice, based on such gross violations as those denouncing the Odebrecht case."

The senator from Hato Mayor province didn't rule out the investigation and interrogation of president Danilo Medina, as other countries have done.

"There are muddied officials from all parties," Cruz said on Azúcar 89.1FM.

He said he expects a precedent to be set in the Dominican Republic, "because in the meantime we're all guilty because some want to taint the government in general."

"What's most important in the Odebrecht issue would be the system of consequence, that the people that have to be charged are charged and pay for their responsibility," Cruz said

Society's indignation is that here the rigor of justice still isn't felt, through a regime of consequence."

Peru has one president in jail awaiting trial and another president just had a warrant issued for his arrest thanks to the bribes case.
