It is assumed that the official has taken advantage of his status as a student, since in Bolivia the State grants economic incentives to public university organizations.
It is business to be a university leader
What was not known is that This aid that Mendoza receives is actually a salary of 21,860 bolivianos, which corresponds to almost 13 million pesos per month. “Being a university leader is business, why study (and graduate) if it has many benefits?”, said Maple.
Now the leader of the CUB must face justice for the crimes of illicit enrichment, benefit by reason of the position, uneconomic conduct and embezzlement.
