SANTO DOMINGO.- Judge Patricia Padilla set for this Wednesday the hearing of the preliminary trial request against the defendant Félix Alburquerque Comprés, accused of killing the communicator Manuel Taveras Duncan.
Duncan’s relatives ask for the full weight of the law to fall on the accused, while they reiterated that they expect the impartiality of justice.
The Public Ministry (MP) deposited a formal accusation before the coordinating judge of the investigative courts of the National District, Kenya Romero, who seized the case to the Second Investigative Court of the National District.
The National District prosecutor, Rosalba Ramos, and the deputy prosecutors, Magaly Sánchez and María Silvestre asked the court to open a trial against the accused, who was confined in prison in Najayo, and to order his maintenance of imprisonment.
The court imposed a year of preventive detention to be served in the Najayo-Hombres Prison for the retired Vice Admiral Félix Alburquerque Comprés for the death of the communicator Manuel Taveras Duncan.
The Permanent Attention Court of the National District judge, Francisco Consoró, imposed the measure. Alburquerque Comprés, former president of the National Directorate for Drug Control (DNCD), is accused of killing the communicator Taveras Duncan after an altercation in a fast food business in the middle of this month.
The Public Ministry requested the imposition of 12 months of preventive detention against the retired vice admiral after estimating that he represents a flight risk.
