The deputies Rodrigo González (PPD) and Daniel Verdessi (DC) presented an extension of the complaint in the framework of the Overtime case -and other irregularities-, perpetrated under the management of the former mayor of Viña del Mar, Virginia Reginato.
According to Radio Bío Bío, the libel was entered into the Court of Guarantee of Viña del Mar and is directed against all those who are guilty of the crimes of abandonment or inexcusable negligence in the administration of public funds and falsification and malicious use of a public instrument.
The first imputation refers to the collection of overtime, by officials of the municipality, between 2016 and 2018. As discovered by the Regional Comptroller of Valparaíso, millionaire amounts were transferred in overturnos impossible to perform.
The second imputation, meanwhile, is part of the Public Account of the Municipality of Viña del Mar made in 2017, “while a report was released to the citizens that did not conform to the budgetary and financial reality,” the complaint indicates.
In the instance, the municipality reported a deficit of 173 million pesos. However, a report from the Comptroller’s Office detailed that the building house incurred a deficit of $ 17,500 million as of December 31, 2017.
The plaintiffs demanded that reginato, his former chief of staff, María Angélica Maldonado, and five other former officials be testified.
