Baja & Border News Translations: 17 Municipal Employees are Possible Addicts; Driver's Uncle Dies in Crash

17 Municipal Employees are Possible Addicts (EL MEXICANO, 12/27/12 by Lorena Garcia Ramirez)

TIJUANA, BC - At least 17 municipal employees gave positive anti-doping tests, primarily to substances including methamphetamine, which resulted in their temporary suspension for the charges. The Municipal Sindicatura gave a total of 880 evidence base tests to trusted workers during 2012.

The Syndic Attorney, Yolanda Enriquez de la Fuente, commented that the latest anti-doping review had five positive tests; however they are still waiting for confirmatory results by the General Procurator of Justice of the State (PGJE). "We have 17 cases that are positive for drugs out of the 880 tests we did. Of those 17, seven were positive for medicines", she said.

Employees who have so far given positive drug tests were working as firefighters, in municipal social development, municipal regulation, receivership and public safety. Some have already been referred to treatment for addictions, a commitment that removes their provisional suspension if they demonstrate they have stopped using prohibited substances and have successfully completed the rehabilitation process. Enriquez de la Fuente said there have been cases in which officials separated from office voluntarily.

The goal for this year was to have at least thousand toxicological tests; however the Office of the State Attorney-General said his laboratory was saturated, so it had no capacity to complete more tests. The official said that most of the aldermen came to take an anti-doping test and all showed negative. "There were a few missing aldermen who were away, so we hope to invite them in during the coming year".

In the next implementation of the exam the Mayor, Carlos Bustamante Anchondo, will also invited. He has shown willingness to participate in the program. Enriquez de la Fuente said that she may also take the test, after overcoming some health issues. http://www.el-mexicano.com.mx/informacion/noticias/1/3/estatal/2012/12/27/639046/adictos-17-empleados-municipales.aspx
