Millions in duty-free waivers to curry political favor
Today’s Dominican society smacks of corruption. Political favors are doled out at the expense of established rules and regulations. Nowhere is that more evident than in the granting of duty-free waivers on luxury vehicles largely to friends and supporters of the ruling Dominica Labour Party (DLP).
This activity has been stepped up as a desperate government seeking to hang on to power have moved to hold on to richer members of society and part of the middle class.
