Municipality files complaint against former administration

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The mayor of Solidaridad has filed an official complaint against former senior administration officials for the misuse of nearly 150 million peso.

“We will continue to defend the patrimony of the solidarity,” says mayor Cristina Torres Gómez.

The complaint was filed against senior officials of the former administration before the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) for undue exercise of federal resources. The total sum unaccounted for is nearly 150 million peso, of which 47 million was found removed from accounts without verification on where or how the money was spent.

“In Solidaridad we are in the route of the recovery of the greatness of our municipality and we will continue defending the patrimony of the solidarenses. For this we do not need sterile roles, our actions are concrete in the search of those who have damaged us,” she said.

She reported that the results of the audits carried out by both the Comptroller’s Office and external auditors have detected a violation of the operating rules of federal programs for which the resources were allocated and that auditors could not find verification of the use of 47 million pesos of federal resources.

She noted that the federal funds were sent to a general account and from that general account, there is no record of its official use.

“We have followed the path of money through internal audits. The audits continue and within these processes are emerging these irregularities,” she said adding that more complaints may be filed.

Prior to this, three other complaints have been filed before the State Attorney General’s Office for crimes of Irregular Performance Of Public Function. Altogether, the four complaints against former public officials total more than 350 million peso and are related  to the misuse of resources.
