|DominicanToday.com - The Central Electoral Board (JCE) has detected more than 7,000 lawyers with fake ID cards in the files of the lawyers’ guild ( CARD) among its more than its 41,000 members.
CARD president Diego J. Garcia stated the attorneys’ concern, because it could be lead to scams and irregular representation of citizens, and warned that the lawyers with false documents will be excluded and that some would be charged.
The forged IDs were detected after more than 20 JCE technicians began a purge of the CARD registries to determine the actual number of lawyers in the country.
The technicians have scanned more than 39,000 affidavits of the lawyers, a process coordinated with the CARD, whose data was also sent to the Supreme Court and the Justice Ministry.
Dominican Watchdog Note: That's why concumer protection in the DR doesn't exist and many foreingers are ripped off by fake or crooked lawyers! Add to that that the whole justice system is corrupt - YOU my friend don't stand a chance!
