This week it was news that Daniel Quintero’s former private secretary, María Camila Villamizar, was fired from the top-level position at EPM in which she had remained thanks to the management of the last administration. With her went another 12 employees who had arrived at the company as quotas for Quintero and his team.

Since Villamizar did not want to voluntarily resign from his position, the company must pay him compensation close to $70 million pesos for his dismissal. Likewise, the other dozen employees who left with her will have to be compensated.
