They leave “free of guilt and sentence” former mayor Édgar Patana for the disappearance of 33 cars

Édgar Patana, former mayor of El Alto for the MAS, was « free of guilt and sentence » within the process that was followed by the disappearance of 33 vehicles that were purchased with resources from the commune, but which an external audit determined to be non-existent.

The Departmental Court of Justice (TDJ) of La Paz, resolved to « annul » the sentence against the former authority, because supposedly there is no evidence to prove his guilt and, in addition, there were errors in the process.

Rafael Quispe, one of the complainants, denounced that “justice is on the side of corruption. It is the worst moment of the justice controlled by the MAS, Patana leaves guilt-free”, He said in statements to radio Fides.

The process against Patana was activated by the Public Ministry in November 2016, when it presented a formal accusation at the request of the Mayor of El Alto, which denounced him for the alleged crimes of breach of duties and uneconomic conduct.

The former mayor assumed functions from June 1, 2010 to December 31, 2014, time in which being authority had acquired vehicles. There are other processes against him for alleged irregularities in the acquisition of ‘Sariri’ buses and for the delivery of motorized vehicles to leaders of social control.
