OPINION: Pubic servant theft  now the rule

776Views 1Comments Posted 09/09/2019

The initiative of the independent deputies to extend to other officials the obligation to present the affidavit of patrimonial property is not only a clamor that they have managed to crystallize in a preliminary bill, but that it becomes necessary. The growing wave of allegations of unjustified enrichment of numerous public servants is as alarming as scandalous. The examples are no longer an exception; they are the rule, with the aggravation of a genuflecting judicial organ, completely separated from its duty to impart justice, becoming complicit in malicious acts. Therefore, it is necessary to have mechanisms that promote greater transparency, so that all citizens realize who accesses these positions to get hold of our tax money and who keeps their hands clean. And for these mechanisms to be effective, the preliminary draft must specify that these statements be public and disclosed on the websites of the institutions where officials work with that obligation. After what happened with the intended reforms to the internal regulations of the Assembly, we hope that the deputies will fulfill their romise to be agents of change, at least, on this issue. – Hoypoyhoy, LA PRENSA, Sep. 8
