The Comptroller General of the Republic sent to the Public Prosecutor’s Office the audit report on the use of G. 500,000 million of the bonds issued by the Municipality of Asunción that were to be used to finance works.

Among the irregularities pointed out by the extra-power body is the destination of the money to a “single account of the Municipal Treasury”, from where the disbursements were made. They argue that the legislative regulations that govern the aforementioned method establish that this method cannot be applied by a municipal government.

“The legislative regulations governing the single account modality (law 5097/13) clearly cannot be applicable to a municipal government, firstly, because in the case of municipalities, this law is in conflict with the Municipal Organic Law that prohibits the use of funds from the issuance of bonds to pay current expenses,” the document states.

The report indicates that the single account modality was established to manage the institutions’ surpluses, not to finance a treasury deficit. It indicates that under the management of the capital’s mayor, Oscar “Nenecho” Rodriguez, current expense payments totaling G. 492,000,000,000 were made with funds from the single municipal account modality, without attaching supporting documents and without detailing the origin of the resources used.

It also mentions that a total of G. 287,000,000,000 was used to cover vehicle maintenance, fuel, rental of collection vehicles, tires, insurance, vehicle repairs, various spare parts, tools, asphalt emulsion, crushed stone, uniforms, milk, transportation services and final disposal of waste.

The report also states that the cost of public investments in the acquisition of machinery and tools to equip operational areas, as well as infrastructure works, was covered for approximately G 50,000 million, as well as the payment of capital and interest on bonds for the sum of approximately G 155,000,000,000.
