The «Junk Case» regenerates controversy, not just because l Mayor, the former mayor of Uñoa, Pedro Sabat, must face a new formalization for repeated crime of incompatible negotiation, but because the name of a renowned front-ampista leader of the Green Environmental Party (PEV) came to light again.

Medina was part of the Monitoring Committee for the Santiago Poniente landfill project, which belonged to Proactiva and also president of the Maipú Environmental Defense Council. The current leader of the PEV criticizes Leon for the lack of payments by KDM: «I want to tell you the egg shot, you am the manager of the weá, you looked for the wea, you had me for a year without throwing me lucas… All I’m telling you, Fernando, catch up… There’s no wea of principle here, compadre, here the wea is a ticket.»

The response came from the president of the environmentalists and Congressman González would have pointed out that his case was currently reviewed by the party’s Supreme Court.
A response that has been seen as «inadequate» by several FA leaders, who hope this will be «resolved soon,» so that «they don’t put us all in the miso jar.»
