DR1 - In a bloody scene in the very center of the southwestern city of Bani, agents of the National Police were able to rescue a lawyer who had been kidnapped. Yesterday, Wednesday 25 April, the National Police rescued Julio Franjul, who had been kidnapped by four individuals in the afternoon. They killed two of the kidnappers, arrested another and are looking for the fourth who went into the mountains near the Cruce de San Jose de Ocoa. Franjul, a well-known lawyer in the province of Peravia, was violently taken out of his offices on Duarte Street by four men who escaped down the highway that leads to Azua. National Police spokesman General Maximo Baez Aybar reported that the two kidnappers, whose identity is still unknown, died in a gun battle with a patrol that was looking for them. The team that rescued Franjul was led by General Juan Ramon de la Cruz Martinez, the police commander in the National Police Central Directorate. The National Police chief ordered an elite team from the institution to take part in the search for the fourth kidnapper. Read original at DR1.
