The report publicly presented by the tribunal Revive El Puerto last Thursday includes a section that under the title “Legal and illegitimate corruption” lists some practices that consider that should not have a place in the City Hall, as legal corruption understood “What a way to manage public damage for the common good of citizens , which is not shaped by law, but which creates concrete benefits for certain natural or legal persons and which can sometimes be done for possible connections and favors to positions in power, among examples such as liniments, revolving valves or fostering treatments”.
The report states that “corruption, both illegal and legal, and the incompetence of government society in all its forms are detrimental to the city’s economy, to local entrepreneurship, to the ethical and administrative sustainability of the municipal organization, as well as to its effectiveness and efficiency.”
It is also said that this material “is an element that cannot be left out of any analysis or proposal that is carried out in the city, since it directly and indirectly affects any proposal or measure that we want to carry out. Where you live and who has the power to hold the balance we decided in common, the first obstacle to be met with us.
The report requires transparency and good practices from the local administration
Likewise, they add, “The City Council must be emptied of information that promotes or benefits from it, and measures must be implemented, which will also oversee the entire transparency and proper functioning of this state, which concerns all citizens.” More specifically, the report points to a specific section “in this municipal mandate”, showing “some examples of corruption, which is perhaps the tip of the iceberg of a municipal institution that has historically faced and hindered corruption, perpetuated”. to this day.”
The examples they bring are the following: Antonio Caraballo (councilor of the mayor. “Pp has been in power in our city for twelve years and has openly shown symbiosis with the actions of the recently condemned former party. Mayor Hernán Díaz, of the Independents of Porto, in the figure of Antonio Caraballo, commonly known as the shadow mayor . This character is irregularly hired by Germán Beard and he receives a salary of about 70,000 coins per year. This is enough to understand how this City Council works.”
They also say the offerings are without permission. “During this mandate we have seen many cases of irregularities from the opening without authorization of several beach closures, the beauty of Valdelagrana or the case of Noria”. Another problem is the establishment of the advertisement of Naturgia, “for the promotion from the public networks of the private industry”, and they also allude to “the attempt to destroy the Rancho Linares Forests and the throwing of illegal waste, which must be avoided. The work of Ecologistas en Acción. The developer has always supported the Council in the city”.
In the case of Rafael Serrano, they mention that “he was asked to run the municipal company El Puerto Global, which is one of the few municipal companies with a good financial result that left it almost destroyed under his management. Today, as a reward, the government team wants us to pay him almost 600,000 in compensation and salary in to return to his term”.
As for the failure of the Pozos Dulces car park, they consider this project to be “Another clear example of what the incompetence and corruption of our legal institutions achieve, something that seems to be very expensive to the people of Porto (16 million of cash claims the promoter. to the Vatican Council)”.
Finally, the report declares “the role of the Port Authority, a public port company owned by Teófila Martínez who oversees public land, manages business and debt to interest the land that belongs to us.”
With regard to the custom of linaments, the report states that anyone who has had the long process of obtaining a license to build or open, or who knows the renter who did it, knows what he means. Sometimes it is also necessary to stop the project in the middle of the principal costs. However, during this mandate we have seen several occasions of premises without permission, counting some of them during the visit of Germán Beard and his company.
In this sense, they add that “the culture of liniments leads to less private investment, less entrepreneurship and the loss of the local commercial fabric”, and they ask “to prevent the cost places within the local administration and to change the politics of public institutions through the positions of special professionals in the sectors, and apply the right equally to all people who companies have or who undertake.
Regarding the failure of the Pozos Dulces car park, an independent hearing is requested
With regard to the Pozos Dulces car park, Vivifica believes that “that work should be the subject of an independent audit by the organization, which is unanimously agreed by all parts of the municipality. It is necessary to analyze where the fault lies in the current situation and where mistakes have been made, so that such a waste of our public resources does not happen again.” .
Regarding the Port Authority, it is stated in the report that “leader Teófila Martínez” has become an active actor for the planning of our city and the use of certain land costs. It is not coherent that we continue to use public areas of public land, such as a friendly walk, and be received without negotiation or controversy, nor is it coherent the speculation about public land being built in our city. on the lot or on the granting of various licenses to be opened.
Finally, the report calls for the creation of an anti-corruption citizen observatory “in the middle of space to monitor the activities, expenses and transparency of the Vatican Council, whoever governs”, proposing to present information on a regular basis to verify. levels of transparency.
