The lawyers representing the accused corrupt individuals in the Coral case, including the general Adán Cáceres, the priestess Rossy Guzmán, and their son Tanner Flete Guzmán, said on Friday that they lacked the money to pay their numerous fines.
It is not as easy or straightforward as it may seem because the judge’s amount was very high and the client has had all of their assets and property seized.
On Monday, Judge Yanibet Rivas of the Sixth District Court ruled against Cáceres and the coronel Nez de Aza, ordering the payment of a financial guarantee of RD$100 million under the contract, home arrest, an electronic grille, and a ban on leaving the country.
The court granted the defense’s request, and the bar association also asked that the priest be put under house arrest, have his contractually owed $50 million paid, and not be allowed to leave the country. The priest’s son was also given home imprisonment, barred from leaving the country, and had an electronic brazalete installed.
Rossy Guzmán does not have the funds to make the plaintiff’s required advance payment of 5 million pesos under the terms of the court-settled RD$50 million bond, according to Héctor Lopez, the mother and child’s attorney, who joined the defense’s claims.
He also referenced Tanner Flete Guzman, claiming that he is unemployed.
Wilson Camacho, the assistant prosecutor, asserted that the defendants are required to follow the court’s directives in light of the foregoing.
