The president of the Chamber of Deputies, Iván Flores, explained that all the benches agreed that they will review the payment mechanisms, after it was known that the Prosecutor’s Office is investigating Deputy Francisco Eguiguren (R N) for fraud of the tax office in the use of the allocations to pay their debts.
According to information from the Third PM, the parliamentarian acknowledged having reimbursed money from congressional appropriations.
In this regard, Flores commented that all benches agreed to review payment mechanisms. «We will present it in the internal committee which is the instance that the corporation has to solve such matters. The general secretariat is working on a proposal and we will see it tomorrow how we are going to resolve from now on any franc that we could have open in this area.»
«What we do as an institution is, along with surrenders, we understand that they are documents that establish payment and if a bill is presented within a surrender is established paid. In this case these bills were paid,» Flores explained.
«The administrative system operated properly. We have no qualms about that. Today, in meeting all the benches, of all the political parties we agreed that we will review all payment mechanisms. In any case this means in any case the responsibility of the parliamentarian in the handling of his own assignments, in the case of the resources delivered for operating expenses, and that today if they hand us an invoice or a ballot means that he is already paid and we hand over the resources to be returned to the parliamentarian,» the Speaker of the House added.
Finally, Flores commented that «when there is a different treatment, that’s going to try to rule. We will present it in the internal committee which is the instance that has the corporation to solve such matters, the general secretariat is working on a proposal and we will see it tomorrow how we are going to solve from now on any franc that we could have open on this subject.»
