Dominican Republic Requests Extradition of Man Linked to Journalist’s Killing

SANTO DOMINGO – The Dominican Republic on Sunday officially started extradition proceedings against Matias Avelino Castro, a Dominican citizen arrested in Colombia on charges that he masterminded the murder of journalist Jose Silvestre in La Romana in 2011, the Attorney General’s Office said.

Avelino Castro was arrested on an order filed with Interpol by the Dominican Republic, the AG’s office said in a statement.

The extradition process is being coordinated with the Foreign Ministry and the Dominican Embassy in Colombia.

Elvin Canario de Oleo and Angel Amed Mañon Gutierrez were each sentenced to 30 years in prison and a fine of 8 million pesos (about $174,888) by a judge for murdering Silvestre.

Mañon Gutierrez worked as Avelino’s driver.

Silvestre, whose body was found on Aug. 2, 2011, in El Peñon, was murdered after reporting in his magazine, La Verdad, that some killings in the eastern Dominican Republic were the product of a turf war involving rival drug trafficking organizations.
