Former President Salvador Jorge Blanco, accused of stealing millions of dollars from the government, left the Dominican Republic for Atlanta to be treated for a heart ailment. Jorge Blanco, 60, boarded a specially equipped airplane after being taken by ambulance from a private hospital in the capital where he had been treated for the past week.
