|The Peravia province (south) senator said many officials, whom he didn’t identify, become rich in a gross and shameless manner with the taxpayers money before the authorities’ indifference.|
He said there was much corruption in Hipólito Mejía’s Administration, but that the current one isn’t far back. “In Hipólito Mejía’s Government there was much corruption, but those in front aren’t far ahead if those behind run well."
The lawmaker attributes the situation to the authorities’ lack of measures to control corruption, and said it’s inconceivable that a TV program detects the corruption the law enforcement agencies cannot. "It’s an inexplicable action,” he said, and noted his recent charges that Peravia police and prosecutors had links to drug trafficking.
The lawmaker from the city Baní requested that those who steal the nation’s money be immediately charged.
"I believe that many officials are becoming rich, Nuria simply has denounced some, but there’s nothing said about the majority, I do in fact have serious information on the matter,” Guerrero said during a recess of a meeting with ruling PLD party legislators to discuss the constitutional reform now being debated by the National Assembly.
