The Executive Director of the Mirabal Nuns County Women’s Development Office, Linabel Gonzalez, has denounced that so far the relatives of the young Yanelis Arias, who died last Friday after being attacked with the devil’s acid, have not received any information from the authorities.
There is a lack of information from the competent authorities for the family and society. Gonzalez said when interviewing Hochi Laura on the El Día TV show and Edith Viblis.
The official stressed that although they “understand” that not all information can be shared by the Public Prosecution Office, there are basic things that families should know by virtue of the fundamental right.
During the interview, Gonzalez revealed that while Yanellis was alive and “aware of what was going on” prosecutors did not interview her.
“On one occasion, the Public Prosecution went (to the medical center), and put heavy bandages on because she underwent an operation, but they set the interrogation date for Wednesday,” he said.
He warned that there was evidence that he “could get lost along the way”, with even his relatives being “overwhelmed with suspicion” by not knowing what actions the authorities are taking or knowing what information to share.
Nobody is arrested
Gonzalez emphasized that the authorities have not detained anyone so far, despite the fact that there has been speculation about the person who could be the intellectual thinker of the crime.
“Doubts about a man paying someone (…) I don’t know and I don’t know, but from the comments and what he discussed with the family is a man,” he said on the program.
The official called on the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the National Police to investigate technical personnel who “do not have much local relations.”
“In this case everything is possible, we must exclude any situation of local relations that (…) the issue of transparency in dealing with this issue is necessary,” he said.
He concluded, “The fact that the culprit is found will not bring Yanellis back to life, but it is a response to society, it is a response that society needs.”
Deceive her with flowers
Yiannis Arias was deceived by a man who pretended to be a messenger from a flower shop, telling her, “They sent her flowers and she should come and look for her.”
The man threw devil acid at him and immediately fled the scene.
The young woman who was attacked was taken to the burn unit of the Nai Arias Laura Hospital in Santo Domingo, but due to the severity of the injuries to her face and part of her body, she died two weeks later.
Lawyer Felix Portes reported last Sunday that there is a bounty of S$261,000 for someone who helps arrest the physical and intellectual author of throwing acid at Yanellis.
“We are offering a reward of R$10,0000.00 for information that helps in the arrest of the physical and intellectual author of the horrific crime against Yanelles Arias in Tenares who was a victim of del Diablo acid and left two children orphaned! Help RT,” said Felix Portez.
In the post, several people stated that they would contribute money, so the lawyer said that so far there were 261,000 pesos for the person reporting the person or persons responsible for the crime.
