Sammy Sosa appears for questioning in Dominican Republic corruption case

The names of the former player and his brother are allegedly related to companies that are being investigated by the Dominican authorities

After months of waiting, Sammy Sosa, one of the most popular Dominican expeloteros in history, formally appeared before the Office of the Special Prosecutor for the Persecution of Administrative Corruption of the Dominican Republic (PEPCA) to give statements about alleged links between him and one of his brothers with companies that are being investigated in one of the largest corruption schemes in Dominican history.

During the month of December 2020, the PEPCA filed requests for coercion measures against several former officials. Among the documentation that accompanied these requests, there are authorizations for Sosa and his brother so that he, allegedly, could manage a loan or a line of credit of ten million dollars with a Dominican bank. On the same date, according to the Dominican authorities, a brother of Sosa was also authorized to open a bank account at a US bank.

Faced with this situation, the PEPCA requested the presence of the former player and his brother to give statements, which has occurred during the afternoon of this November 10, with Sosa staying in the offices until late in the afternoon, without the player, his brother or his legal representatives have made statements.

It is important to note that there is no formal accusation against Sammy Sosa and his brother. They have been called to give their statements to an investigation that continues to be open and on which the PEPCA authorities must present an accusation in December.

Sosa appeared before the prosecutors who lead the investigation of the aforementioned case, the director of Persecussion of the Public Ministry, Yeni Berenice Reynoso and the head of the PEPCA, Wilson Camacho, along with his legal representative, Emery Rodríguez.
