An investigation of Cyprus realize that some deputies use their gasoline charging cards irregularlyrecording its use by family and friends, which contravenes the rules of your benefit.
Parliamentarians have cards to refuel their vehicles, those associated with a personal code, a RUT and a patentFor what is supposed to be a difficult system to break, this system was implemented in 2018.
According to the investigative media, the deputy Cristóbal Urruticoechea, of the Republican Party, records various charges made by his son and his wifesomething that is outside the regulatory framework.
Tamara Küpfer Moller, loaded gasoline in, at least 38 times; His son, Ignacio Urruticoechea, appears in the records making a load of 34 liters of diesel on January 18, 2021 in San Bernardo, and again on July 16, 2022 at a gasoline pump in Concón. That time the charge was for $46,413.
But he is not the only parliamentarian who registers unlawful charges. Deputy Claudia Mixfrom Comunes, writes down his daughter, and the deputy Viviana Delgado (Green Ecologist) her husband appears.
Congresswoman Mix argued that she does not have a driver’s licenseso she needs someone to do it for her, being that person who loads fuel with her card.
Meanwhile, Viviana Delgado said something similar, since not driving after being in an accidentso it is her marine who does it for her, managing the charge cards.
Another case that causes suspicion is that of the communist deputy, Boris Barrerawho accused that one of the cards was stolen, with which they made fuel charges for $1.7 million throughout that month.
What causes suspicion is that in order to be used, the key that approves them must be known. This can be due to negligence in its operation by the operator of the gasoline pump, but it is not something proven.
Another case discovered by the investigation is that of diego paulsenformer deputy for the 22nd district of La Araucanía, who on May 26, 2020 appeared participating in a session of the Chamber, at the same time that he was listed charging $32,000 in gasoline at a service station in Temuco.
Paulsen noted: “I didn’t have cards for my advisers. I only had mine, and I passed it to the chief of staff to occupy it.” According to the publication, other advisors to parliamentarians also give their boss’s RUT to keep it on record.
