DomRep nautical club demolished, violations cited

Authorities in the Dominican Republic have demolished part of a newly completed nautical club in a popular tourist area they say violated environmental laws.
Environment Ministry official Andy Omar Johnson says a Dominican development company ignored previous warnings the agency sent regarding the illegal construction. Dominican law prohibits certain types of construction less than 200 feet (60 meters) from the beach.
Company officials could not be reached for comment.
Johnson said Wednesday that crews demolished the pool and game area.
The three-story, 800-sq.-meter (8,600-sq.-foot) club was built east of the capital in the Altagracia province.
