Request for informationLópez Valencia assured that the payment of salaries to ex-officials is an issue that must be thoroughly investigated, so it was given the task of requesting the Ahome Citizens’ Surveillance and Transparency Council to request the information for the transparency department of the current municipal administration.» We hope to have that response in time soon. I would not like to speculate on this, but it must be ruled out that those salaries that are being paid to people who are no longer working in the municipality. It may be that these people are not receiving it, but someone else is charging for them; that’s why we’ve made that request to the Citizens Council to ask for information so that we can rule out or eliminate that situation,» he explained.

The information is public on the official website of the Ahome City Council. 

They do not chargeWhile, the mayor of Ahome, Manuel Guillermo Chapman Moreno, merely said that this information is wrong because the municipality does not keep the payment to the former officials in mention.
