Canadian flight crew escape Dominican Republic after 8 months

The Canadian flight crew were detained on April 6 after reporting 210kg of cocaine on their aircraft. They were not allowed to leave the chithole country. Surveillance video that was captured at Punta Cana International Airport the night before was tampered with, suggesting a conspiracy against the Canadians. Folks best avoid a country like the Dominican Republic. There are better alternatives. Its a Hells Angels paradise for a reason.

Crew found the drugs in a compartment that contained critical electrical gear and reported the find both to local officials and the RCMP.
Canadian charter airline Pivot Airlines says its 2 pilots and 2 flight attendants are being unfairly detained in dangerous, inhumane conditions in the Dominican Republic after reporting what turned out to be 210 kg of cocaine stashed in their plane. The aircraft is a Bombardier regional jet that until two years ago was flying under Air Canada Express colors. It is now held at Punta Cana airport.
The plane is registered under C-FWRR and still bears the 105 tail number used when it flew Air Canada Express routes. It has travelled extensively in the Caribbean over the last year, according to the FlightRadar24 website. Almost all of its 65 flights since mid-December have been to or from the region, including stops in the Dominican Republic, Saint Martin, Jamaica, Nassau, Puerto Rico and Antigua.
