Havana Cuba. – Carlos Mendieta, chief prosecutor of the Directorate of Tax Verifications, of the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic, assured that ninety percent of the complaints sent by the population to that body are correct or partially correct, even the unknown ones.
He explained that this body does its work based on a plan that includes the main priorities of the country, to which these accusations are added, although they often coincide with the issues.
Mendieta pointed out that in some cases these are tax verifications and in other cases investigations, which are shorter and aimed at specific facts, but always carried out in respect of due process.
All these investigations, whether carried out by the national body or its provincial or municipal directorates, and other justice entities where they forwarded the complaint, are always followed by the Attorney General’s Office until their conclusion.
Lack of control, the Achilles Heel
Carlos Mendieta, chief prosecutor of the Tax Verification Directorate of the Attorney General’s Office, pointed out that the lack of control is the main reason for most of the violations they have detected, although non-compliance with the rules is also recurring.
He mentioned the tax verification done by that body about vulnerable people who are subsidized for the construction or repair of their house, and those who receive one for having THREE or more minors children.
Mendieta stated that they investigated twenty complaints from the population and in all cases the advocates were right, because they noticed more than 130 violations of established rules and mechanisms.
The tax audit led to more than 200 disciplinary measures applied to managers, officials and workers, among other actions.
