The carrier Blas Peraltawho is serving 30 years in prison for the murder of the former rector of the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (UASD), Mateo Aquino Febrillet, was transferred from the La Romana prison to the Najayo-Men Correction and Rehabilitation Center.
A judge ordered that Peralta be changed from prison to prison.
In the year 2017, the First Collegiate Court of the National District sentenced the carrier to 30 years in prison.

The collegiate court found Peralta guilty of attempted murder against the other victims who were traveling in Aquino Febrillet’s vehicle.
“Those judges were partial to the Public Ministry and that was nothing more than a sign that the District Attorney is the one who manages the courts here”Peralta said as he was taken to the cell of the Ciudad Nueva Courthouse with a strong security contingent.
On her side, the prosecutor Yeny Berenice Reinoso said that this sentence was the result of what she promised society from the beginning: that they would have an exemplary sentence against Blas Peralta.
He indicated that the MP demonstrated that the acts committed by Peralta were murder and attempted murder, which was recognized by the court.
