Leading reporter says ‘corruption abounds’ in Water agency
Santo Domingo.- Investigative reporter Nuria Piera on Monday revealed new data which purportedly uncovers corruption in the National Water and Sewage Systems Institute (INAPA), headed by Alberto Holguin.
Speaking on her Monday night program the renowned journalist reported that “INAPA’s corruption is expressed in this case with irregularities, nepotism, influence peddling and legal violations in the administration of state funds.”
“Eight contracts will be awarded to just one company on the same day in August, despite that other companies had costs below the one which was benefited,” Piera said.
She said contracts awarded to associates of INAPA’s director abound. “Purchases and contracts are fractioned to avoid the obligation of conducting a call for tenders or contests.”
