Dominican Republic´s Metro Czar for the last 13 years and key figure in the administration of former president Leonel Fernández, Diandino Peña Criqué, sworn on his financial statement that he receives no income other than the US$3,200 per month he earns as a government official. But a joint Panama Papers investigation of Noticias SIN and Puerto Rico´s Center for Investigative Journalism found that Peña is the beneficial owner or main executive of 29 corporations, 15 offshore and 14 Dominican, that transferred at least $20 million among them in cash, shares and debt payments related to the countries most luxurious tourism and shopping center Silver Sun Gallery. The offshore entities are registered in Panama and British Virgin Islands. Most of the companies, 25 of the 29, were registered after Peña got into government in 1996. Meanwhile, he handled the country’s most expensive infrastructure work ever, the Santo Domingo Metro, for a cost ranging US$2 billion up-to-date.
