Santo Domingo.- Joel Pineda’s relatives changed their faces from sadness to joy when they learned that he, along with two other truck drivers, was released in Haiti, after spending a month and nine days in the hands of kidnappers. For the release of Pineda and his companions Wilson Rodriguez and Luis Diaz, the kidnappers even asked for UUS$200,000 to allow them to return to the Dominican Republic. On Monday night, in his neighborhood 13 kilometers north of the city, Pineda’s relatives played music, drank beer and prepared a sancocho when they learned that he was coming back to his homeland and with his coworkers.
