“They are invoices for different things; jobs for Meco and some other companies,” he added.

According to him, it is probable that the documents are related to the Cochinilla Case or other road works.

“There are several invoices recovered and the OIJ is already investigating. Definitely, it is now theirs from now on. I filed a complaint and they immediately came,” stated Councilor Rodríguez.

The backhoe used to unearth the documents is from the Municipality of Grecia.
