Dominican Drug Enforcement Chief’s Top Assistant Murdered

SANTO DOMINGO – The top assistant of the head of the Dominican Republic’s drug enforcement agency was murdered by unidentified individuals over the weekend, officials said.

Lt. Col. Cesar Augusto Ubri Bocio served as the personal assistant of DNCD drug enforcement agency director Maj. Gen. Rolando Rosado Mateo.

The 45-year-old officer was shot several times while driving his SUV through a residential section of Santo Domingo.

“This is a kind of message” to try to scare those involved in the war on drugs, Rosado Mateo said.

The gunmen stole Ubri Bocio’s vehicle after killing him, investigators said.

The officer’s killers “are going to pay a very high price for this affront,” the DNCD said in a statement released on Monday.

“Everything indicates that we are dealing with some kind of message because of the way that Ubri Bocio’s killers shot him,” the DNCD said.

Ubri Bocio “was shot with a shotgun in each arm, something that we in the DNCD have taken as a message,” the agency said.

The officer’s murder will not “keep us from continuing to deal with drug trafficking in all its forms,” the DNCD said. EFE
