A former public servant of the government of Durango it was caught stealing in the building of the Undersecretary of Finance and Administration. This was reported by the head of the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) of Durango, Sonia Yadira de la Garza Fragoso.
The incident happened on September 16, the day on which Louise “N” took advantage of the absence of personnel, due to the national holidays, to illegally extract 1 million 600 thousand Mexican pesos. It was not until this September 20 that the prosecutor reported on the arrest of the former official.
The official explained that during the ceremony to commemorate the beginning of the Independence movement, FGE agents were informed about a suspicious event in government offices that should have been empty on that date.
“Moments before the raising of the flag, an anonymous complaint is received in the radio booth of the State Attorney General’s Office where they make it known that there is a female person inside the Undersecretary of Finance and Administration and that this person it seems he wants to steal money and documents”
Elements of the Prosecutor’s Office went to the scene and discovered a car Mazda White color parked in front of the building entrance. Shortly after they arrived, a woman left the premises with a transparent bag full of money and documentation.
The suspect got into her vehicle and drove a few meters, after which the agents stopped her and questioned her about the origin of what she was carrying. He identified himself as technical secretary of the Undersecretary of Expenditures of the Ministry of Finance and Administrationbut failed to explain why he had state resources in his possession.
Yadira de la Garza, head of the FGE, pointed out that the extraction of the money was illegal because the woman was part of the administration of former governor José Rosas Aispuro and did not have the authorization of the current state president, Esteban Villegas. It is for this reason that Luisa “N” was apprehended.
In the investigations after the apprehension, they have found dDocuments that link other former public officials with the illegal theft of resources of the Government of Durango.
Last September 15 Esteban Villegas relieved José Rosas Aispuro of the post as governor of the state of Durango. Aispuro Roses came to government under the banner of Transparency and accountabilityfor which he created the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office state.
Despite the actions he took to facilitate the identification of cases of mismanagement of public resources, during his administration there was controversy that questioned the use of the state budget.
One of the main problems was the demonstrations by unionized teacherswho accuse that in the last two years have not received their payments or benefits on timehey he non-compliance with the economic amounts in scholarships of excellence for students.
Likewise, the last declaration of assets of Rosas Aispuro has gaps that make it impossible to know the total amount of his assets. The most recent information indicates that from January 1, 2021 to December 31 of the same received 1 million 553 thousand 912 Mexican pesoscoming exclusively from the payment he received for his position as governor.
However, the former national president omitted the cost of assets declared in the name of the couple, economic dependents and third parties in co-ownership
