Superior Electoral Court justices violate salary law: audit
Santo Domingo.- An Accounts Chamber audit of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) uncovered that the justices’ salaries were RD$6.5 million higher than those of the Central Electoral Board (JCE) in 2012.
“Senior officials of the entity, acting in the performance of their duties, didn’t adhere to the mandatory legal, statutory and regulatory provisions for administrators of public funds," the report said, quoted by diariolibre.com.
It notes that the high Court violates articles of law 29-11, which calls for the justices to have salaries equal to those of the JCE.
The TSE justices were paid a total RD$22.08 million in fixed salaries during 2012, while those of the JCE received RD $15.5 million, or RD$6.53 million more.
