10 state inspectors dismissed for irregularities

Cancun, Q.R. — Head of the Federal Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risk says that 10 inspectors around the state have been dismissed for acts of corruption.

Miguel Pino Murillo, head of the Federal Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risk (COFEPRIS) for Quintana Roo reports that 10 inspectors who have incurred acts of corruption or irregularities in their duties have been removed from their positions.

He says in addition to those 10, two fake inspectors were detected in Cancun extorting business, adding that the agency is tightening protocol for the 123 operational workers around the state.

He warned that the fight against corruption has begun and is the reason businesses and commercial sectors have been notified, so they will not be taken by impersonators. He reminds people that inspectors can be identified by their mandatory credentials, something neither of the two fake Cancun inspectors carried.

Pino Murillo says that security measures are being implemented for inspectors of COFEPRIS, among them, that the documents are sealed and signed by each of the coordinators and the same director as well as wearing the uniform and carrying the credentials with a hologram that makes them identifiable by the public.
