Senador dice empresarios se oponen a ley extinción de dominio

Senator says businessmen oppose domain forfeiture law

The senator of the Samaná province for the Modern Revolutionary Party (PRM), Pedro Catrain, stated this Friday that the business sector does not want approve the bill on asset forfeiture as it would imply a prosecution of tax fraud.

“The domain extinction law sanctions any illicit increase in public or private assets, that is, tax fraud is a criminal offense and businessmen do not want tax fraud to be penalized,” Catrain said during an interview on the radio program El Rumbo de la Mañana, which is broadcast on 98.5 FM of the RCC Media group.

He added that this bill, which has been in Congress for ten years, comes with “an image of blockade by political and business sectors.”

Catrain argued that the law on asset forfeiture is fundamental so that due process is respected where each person can defend themselves and present their arguments.

“This law is necessary, in this law due process is going to be respected, every person will have the right to defend and to present their arguments and evidence,” he said during the interview.

He emphasized that all heritage originating from illegality cannot become, in legal terms, something natural.

“What is born illegal must remain illegal, it is perpetually illegal, it can never pass into the legal system as something natural,” he specified.
