Three years have passed since Cecilio Díaz and William de Jesús Checo were killed by the police. Three years after the killings, no officer has been charged with the deaths of William de Jesús Checo and Cecilio Díaz. The families of both men desperately demand justice. Unfortunately, this case is not isolated. Hundreds of people are killed every year by the Dominican police, many in circumstances suggesting that the killings were unlawful. Although some cases are prosecuted, too many remain unpunished.
