Ernesto Castro points out that the FMLN established a corruption framework within the Salvadoran Congress

The president of the Legislative Assembly, Ernesto Castro, confirmed that the leftist political party, FMLN, had ghost seats where they financed themselves, enriched themselves and promoted their political parties when the elections approached.

In that sense, he assured that they established a model of corruption and did not earn what was really their salary.

“The audits show that in previous legislatures there was a game of budgeting more and that surplus was put in to hire activists. That’s the game they made, and we have it documented” — he noted.

The president of the Assembly reiterated that upon their arrival as a new Congress, they made the commitment that, once they settled, one of the first actions was going to be to carry out a comprehensive audit of the institution, and these findings are now part of the results.
