Government: Ventura Accuses Former Tourism Secretary of Immorality and Lack of Ethics
In his opinion, “it will increase public criticism if the public ministry, through an opinion, a prior action, let me know it’s illegalbecause the former secretary of state herself says she is convinced of the legitimacy of the situation.”
Ventura said that a “revolving door scheme” was at stake and that “it is so clear that the letter of the law is designed to prevent situations like this that only a sense of blatant impunity can cause a female official to behave in this manner.” “.
Considering that “the three-year period of disgust is very short and allows you to make all kinds of transactions,” leader Chegi criticized “this law has practically no sanction” and defended need to “reform this regime”.
“Only with a complete ban on holding positions in companies that received benefits or were trained by these rulers, as state rulers, this is solved,” President Chegi defended.
Noting that “it was the PS that enacted and applied the legislation in force today in terms of the period of disgust and incompatibility,” he also asked “how the PS judiciary feels in such a situation, which grossly violates the norms that they themselves have approved in this regard.” “.
