Baja & Border News Translations: 19 Inspection and Verification Inspectors Removed; Virgin of Guadalupe Pilgrimages Held
19 Inspection and Verification Inspectors Removed (El Sol de Tijuana, 12/2/12 by Daniel Angel)
Tijuana, BC - So far, the municipal administration has withdrawn 19 inspectors from the Directorate of Inspection and Verification, according to figures from its director, Daniel Leon.
The number rises as a result of statements made by aldermen in opposition to the framework of the second year of the municipal administration, who argued there is still corruption in the area.
"I am not a judge but it is very easy to see, I would not like to bring these few inspectors with me", the official said about the accusations.
He insisted if any merchant is a victim of abuse by any inspector, retain their name to report them so we may address it accordingly.
A few weeks ago, media published a reported detention of an inspector for allegedly having participated in a robbery to a business. In this case Daniel Leon said that inspector involved was dismissed although there was not enough information to charge them and they managed to regain their freedom. http://www.oem.com.mx/elsoldetijuana/notas/n2792316.htm
