A group of deputies from Chile Vamos will turn to the Ethics Commission of the Lower House to ask that Giorgio Jackson be sanctioned for “breach of good faith”, in the context of the controversy over donations to the Democratic Revolution.
In the document, released by T13, parliamentarians accuse Jackson of “making the population believe that there is a free and disinterested act such as donation, when what there is is a commercial use of banking instruments for partisan purposes, it is clearly a deception and an infraction of parliamentary ethics ”.
The intention of Chile Vamos is that the RD deputy receives a sanction and a fine of 5% of his parliamentary diet or whatever “this honorable commission deems appropriate”.
This, since Giorgio Jackson is committing a “breach of duties in good faith”, for which reason “we request, in turn, that the advisers of the Democratic Revolution be hired by the Resolutive Council of Parliamentary Appropriations. compliance with the rules and provisions that regulate the hiring of support personnel ”.
The UDI deputy Juan Antonio Coloma assured that “for years, publicly, they have tried to give moral lessons that were reflected in the donation of part of their diet. These were not donations, but part went to the party and another to an ‘account 2’ with an unknown destination; that has to be clarified ”.
His words were shared by his peer RN Paulina Núñez, who added that “the ethics, transparency and good faith of parliamentarians is as important as acting within the law.”
Although at the time the deputies of Chile Vamos analyzed submitting a complaint to the Public Ministry, they acknowledged in the brief that “it is evident that these acts are, from a merely legal perspective, absolutely legal. The political parties financing law allows this type of contributions. Notwithstanding this, what is reprehensible here is a matter that goes beyond the legal scope and that is related to the honesty in the delivery of information by the front-wing party and especially Deputy Mr. Giorgio Jackson ”.
