The Navarre-Suma coalition censored the “refusal” of the Maria Civite government to provide information it requested about contracts related to the management of COVID-19. For this reason, he requested the protection of the table and council of representatives of Parliament. In addition, he will ask this question at the next plenary session, according to Europa Press.
The coalition recalled in a statement that on April 8, 2022, Ministry of Health spokeswoman Cristina Ibarrola requested from the government of Navarre “a copy of all information in the file of each of the current contracts for the expenditure of goods and services for the total of 70.48 million mentioned in the report of the Accounts Chamber on management of COVID-19 by the administration of the Autonomous Community of Navarre (March-December 2020)”. “These contracts mainly include the purchase of medical supplies, chemical and laboratory products, as well as contracts for medical care,” he explained.
On May 11, 2022, the parliamentarian received a response in which “the requested information is rejected and only general data on contract companies and amounts are sent, and not copies of the documents of each of the files for the sole reason that there are more than 9,500 files.” “We do not understand the government’s refusal, as it can provide the requested information through computer support that it deems appropriate,” Ibarrola said. “Another thing is that he does not want to give it to us, because he has something to hide, which would worry us a lot,” he said.
Ibarrola considered “the obscurant attitude of the government of Maria Civite towards such a sensitive issue as the purchase of medicines to fight a pandemic, where there is only absolute transparency, deplorable.” He also stated that “withholding information” from the NA+ parliamentary group “is a constant task of the government of Navarre throughout the legislature, which even forced us to go to court, which we do not rule out returning to do so. this time if they don’t fix it.”
“This government constantly talks about transparency, but does not do it in practice. In addition, he cannot boast of good management, as is usually the case when the Comptos report objectively stated that they were missing from the interim and published contracts worth 56 million euros, and the Navarre government now denies the full information, ”he said. . In this regard, the coalition indicated that “The Chamber of Comptos was only able to control 21% of the money spent by the government of Navarre, and this, according to the executive director himself, amounted to 70.48 million euros.”
