Several deserving veterans of the Chaco War have been removed from their memorials and their spaces have been occupied by others, the Administrator of the General Cemetery, Lilian Scott, announced today.
He said that the previous board of the Beneméritos del Chaco Federation had sold private spaces at very high costs, even in some cases 2 thousand dollars.
Scot revealed documents requested by the Benemerito Federation where the testimonies of the alleged “benemeritos” who died in 2013 are estimated to be between the ages of 50 and 60, but the Chaco War took place between 1932 and 1935.
“The times and ages are not equal. These people are strangers to heroes, we cannot play with the memory of heroes, they deserve respect. Here he said the irregularities.
The representative of the Beneméritos Federation, Susana Soliz, stated that there were irregularities in the past efforts of this institution and criminal complaints against those who sold, but she declared that there was awareness with the officials of the Major Office. He said he could find at least two workers.
They ask for a release
In recent days, the relatives and grandchildren of the meritorious man blocked various roads in the city and protested the removal of the cemetery administrator. They confirm that there are gifts and atrocities in the mourners.
“We don’t know if it’s an inspector of associations or an administrator.” We have sent many notices and to date they have not responded to the request for information that we have requested from them,” he asserted.
Scott denied there were any charges or money and insisted there were obvious irregularities in his administration. He said that the mausoleum was built by a meritorious republic; not children or grandchildren.
A meeting with Mayor Manfredo Reyes Villa is expected to take place on Monday to address this problem. Soliz said that his sector is in the middle of the fourth meeting and will decide the activities.
