"The mayor should not continue in his functions, “said Villada about the raid in Salvador Mazza

The news about the raid that took place in the Municipality of Salvador Mazza and other buildings in that town continues, where a millionaire kidnap was achieved against the mayor Rubén Méndez accused of illicit enrichment, finding a safe with a significant sum in pesos, dollars and euros, high-end vehicles, among other elements.

Among the repercussions of the case, the provincial government anticipated the sending of a bill for the intervention of the municipal Executive in Salvador Mazza, as a consequence of this scandal that transcended the national media inclusively.

The one who now spoke about it was the Minister of Government, Ricardo Villada, lamenting what happened as well as sentencing that Méndez cannot continue in his functions, considering the institutional gravity of the raid that produced the border city.
