Voxxi, a Latin American digital media organization co-founded by Dr. Salomon Melgen has released a post defending the “dignity” of Dr. Melgen.
Melgen, whose office was recently raided by the FBI, is at the center of an ongoing investigation that includes U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D – New Jersey). The two are suspected of participating in sex parties with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.
In Voxxi’s post, Co-Founder Emilio Sanchez brings to light a new theory behind the attacks on Melgen and Menendez. Sanchez brings up Vinicio Castillo Semán:
“The origin of the campaign against Melgen is the opposition of a powerful group of businessmen against increased security and inspections in Dominican ports.”
According to the post, in 2006, Dr. Melgen acquired a port security company by the name of ICSSI. Last July, Senator Menendez led a hearing on “Doing Business in Latin America” stressing the need to stem narcotic trafficking throughout the area, specifically at the seaports. The Senator did not mention Melgen specifically, but did highlight the contract with Melgen’s new company. The contract has caused quite a controversy in the Dominican Republic.
Coincidentally, Semán was the center piece of The Daily Caller‘s latest article on the ongoing Menendez scandal. According to The Daily Caller, who interviewed one of the prostitutes, Semán as a frequent participant. The prostitute was quoted as saying, “Vinicito was there, who goes to many of the doctor’s functions and invents things [to do] with the young girls, and then forces them to do the same things with the doctor’s friend.”
The doctor’s friend… likely Senator Menendez.
