Locked up in a cell 27 feet long and 7 feet wide, without ventilation or windows, with temperatures that rose to 40 degrees, where they took turns sleeping and thus received “a slight draft of air” that filtered through the bars of the door, that’s how Miguel José Moya described his nights in jail, along with seven people involved in the alleged corruption case revealed after the so-called “Operation Medusa.”
“It is a very dramatic confinement experience,” Moya said. “You are there with 7 people with different personalities, different character and ways of reacting to that environment differently,” he added, in an interview for the morning radio program El Sol de la Mañana, broadcast by Zol 106.5.
Showing optimism, José Moya thanked the experience and recounted having achieved that, one by one, those who accompanied him in the cell accepted the reality they were living, including the former attorney Rodríguez, the only one with whom he had had contact before.
“Understanding that you are a prisoner, and being a prisoner means that we must submit to the limitations of this situation with dignity, acceptance and take what this experience offers,” he declared.
For just over two weeks, former attorney Jean Alain Rodríguez, along with Rafael Antonio Mercedes Marte, a former accounting officer, and Alfredo Alexander Solano Augusto, who served as financial director, were detained in the Ciudad Nueva pretrial jail.
Also there were Javier Alejandro Forteza Ibarra, Director of Technology; Jonnathan Josel Rodríguez Imbert, Administrative Director; Jenny Marte Peña, project manager, and Altagracia Guillén Calzado, administrative and financial deputy director.
