However, according to the investigations, their expenditures total the amount of G. 2,667,176,480. This equation resulting in a deficit of G. 1,542,596,233.

Likewise, in the concluding brief it is stated that, “Mirta Evelina Rotela, an official appointed to the Ministry of Public Health and Social Welfare, with a salary of G. 3,360,000, for which reason it is clear that it is absolutely impossible for her to acquire expensive goods and in large quantity.
