Movin asks for Girón to be investigated

Temas:

The civil society Movin has asked for an investigation into Social Security Director Estivenson Giron and the resignation of the entire board of this institution.

The request was made through a statement released today, and it based its request on the operational problems of the institution. It said the most recent of these problems was the decision to grant a $2.1 million no-bid contract to a company to organize a forum this week. That contract has been criticized by the comptroller.

"In this untenable situation an immediate investigation is needed into the actions of managers and their advisors," the statement said. "All managers, administrators and board members must face their responsibilities before the law."

On Wednesday, Comptroller Federico Humbert endorsed the contract because the board had insisted that it be approved.

In a statement, Humbert explained that "the comptroller is not omnipotent," essentially saying he did not have the power to reject the contract.

Humbert said he will seek to have the contract nullified before the Supreme Court. But it is unlikely to happen before the event takes place.

"The comptroller cannot accept the execution of a contract that is clearly onerous for the state," said Humbert.

The International Association for Social Security chose Panama as a venue for its forum, which is held every three years, in 2015.
