The bill for the Declaration and Control of Sworn Estate Declarations, which suppresses the delivery of the document to notaries and proposes that public officials send it directly to the Comptroller through electronic means, had no consensus in the plenary the Assembly, yesterday.
The bill was submitted on April 5, 2013 by comptroller Carlos Polit. On January 14 it passed the first debate and nine days later it was processed in a second debate.
Objections arose in both the ruling and opposition parties. Mariangel Munoz and Marisol Penafiel, both of AP, disagreed to eliminate the presentation of the document before a notary public.
Munoz said that public faith must be granted by the notary and it os healthier to safeguard legal security for the fight against corruption.
