President Danilo Medina
Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina on Monday sidestepped comment over Dominican Republic´s judicial crisis, but asked journalists to focus on his call to not generalize on government scandals, that he once pledged “not to throw bricks at past corruption.”
“What else am I going to talk about? For God´s sake, highlight that of today,!” the president said in reference to his speech to mark the Institutionalism and Justice Foundation´s (FINJUS) 25th anniversary but refused to answer questions afterwards.
Medina did propose a grand bargain with all sectors to end what he sees as a culture of informality and illegality “which has dragged on for centuries.”
He said although he´s aware of the citizens’ manifest anger and despair, “I cannot share the opinion of those who want to put everyone in the same sack and refuse to see the efforts that are underway ” he said in the event at the hotel Embajador.
