OPINION: Probe of spending abuse unlikely


Yanibel Abrego.

Posted 19/11/2021

Abuse is what is behind direct purchases during the [National Assembly] presidency of deputy Yanibel Ábrego. These are recurring purchases that can be made in a tender or through a price contest, but it is more convenient to do so without a public act, to friendly companies, making expenses that are even doubtful. The Comptroller General should investigate these contracts, as it is clear that there is much more than the alleged needs of the Assembly. But what is the real probability that it will be investigated and that it will be possible to get to the bottom of this matter? The answer depends on more than one official, because the gear that pulls the strings in the three governing bodies will surely prevent it. Nevertheless, at least society is informed of how the criteria used to make these expenses are far from real needs and closer to dark objectives, of those that would not reach an investigation, since the true reasons for which they are paid would be exposed Tens of thousands of dollars on curtains, upholstery chairs or enough food for an army, or spent on remodels that cost the same as a house. And perhaps it explains the fortune of some deputies. – LA PRENSA, Nov 19.
