By Atención Staff
The current administration of San Miguel de Allende, led by Mauricio Trejo, filed a criminal complaint before the Ministerio Público (District Attorney’s Office) on April 4 against the former mayor, Luz Maria (Lucy) Nuñez, and her husband, Javier Zavala, for abuse of authority, influence peddling and embezzlement. On behalf of the local government, the municipal treasurer, Jaime Labrada, attended the Ministerio Público, located on the Boulevard de la Conspiración (Salida a Querétaro), in order to file the complaint.
According to Labrada, they have all the evidence necessary to proceed to sue the former mayor; it was obtained through an audit that has been under way since the start of the administration.
“We have the certified copies of contracts and receipts for several million, which were issued to the radio station and television channel owned by Nunez and her husband,” said Labrada. “We are asking for compensation for the damage, so that these resources might be allocated to public spending. The Attorney General and the Órgano Superior de Fiscalización (Supreme Audit Authority) will be responsible for following up the case so that justice is done. ”
Labrada said the audit is not completed yet and as it progresses he will be announcing the results.
