There have been so many scandals over the past few years, its hard to pick one out.admin wrote: ↑Wed Nov 29, 2017 9:12 amno, the big one, that flew under the radar for the most part, was the giving away of the 150 new notary public's. That was a straight up gift from bachelet to party loyalist. Guaranteed income for life, as most notaries die multi-millionaires.
The other one, was the outgoing health department head, signing huge increases in retirement package for the top officials at the health department. Guess, that is what they mean by "NO+AFP" in the bachelet administration. The commie kids protesting on the street can suck up the bill, if they ever find a job.
It wasn't always that way, I think the rot really set in around 2000. Chile used to have a reputation for political and financial responsibility, and still does although that is increasingly being contradicted by widespread and increasingly blatant corruption.
A bad sign is when 120-odd high-ranking Carabineros (an institution that used to be a national symbol), get caught with their hands in the till to the tune of at least USD $40 Million, with more frauds still being uncovered.
Not good. This country is going in the wrong direction.
