The complaint was deposited with the Special Prosecutor for the Defense of the Environment and Natural Resources and it contains an account of the alleged non-observance of local legislation and the requests for public information made.
Last Friday, President Medina inaugurated the termination of the Santo Domingo Este buses against the hair of social sectors, environmentalists, Mayor Manuel Jiménez and the elected senator, Antonio Taveras Guzmán.
