Zechariah: Steadfast in repairing all damage
PROGRESS.– Mayor Julián Zacarías Curi confirmed that the City Council he presides reached an agreement with five of the 11 former councilors of the 2015-2018 triennium, charged with bribery, since the former public servants, as the Commune calls them, repaired the damage committed and they paid in due course.
The mayor made statements about the case of the former councilors denounced for bribery, at the end of the sanitation event of the La Caleta dock that took place yesterday Wednesday morning, he said that only five of the 11 repaired the damage and paid at the time .
In relation to the former defendants who now work in the City Council in different municipal offices, the mayor stressed that five repaired the damage, paid at the time and as a sanction they imposed community work, which, he said, it is not up to him to say .
It also specified that the legal representative of the Commune appealed the case of two accused former councilors who requested the conditional suspension with alternate departure approved by the Control Court.
Julián Zacarías pointed out that only five repaired the damage, with the other six “the judicial process continues and we are going to go to the final stages, we are firm in repairing the damage and getting to the bottom of these situations.”
The City Council, when it addresses the case of bribery that the previous commune reported to the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office, does not mention exediles, but former public servants and neither does it refer that they were part of a municipal administration.
Likewise, the mayor does not identify the former public servants who have already repaired the damage, nor how much they paid, nor the date they did it.
It has already been proven that the accused former councilors Alejandro Pool Vázquez and Jorge Casanova Simá work in the Commune. Gabriela Flores Chan and Arturo Núñez Castro are also mentioned, who would have already repaired the damage and paid at the time.
Commenting on the case of those accused of bribery who work in the City Council, Manuel Muñoz Silva, a former justice of the peace, pointed out that it is to a certain extent immoral for the City Council to employ those accused of corruption, because if they have already committed bribery once, they could do it again.— GABINO TZEC VALLE
He said that by employing them in the Commune, they tacitly forgive the crime allegedly committed, reward them for having participated in the political campaign and having supported the PAN candidates to win the elections.
In the opinion of Manuel Muñoz, out of respect for society and citizens, the City Council should not have hired former councilors as municipal employees that the Commune itself denounced for bribery before the State Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office.
