The Attorney General (Ministerio Publico in Spanish) confirmed three open cases against Araya.
The allegations are related to Araya’s 22 years at the helm of the Municipalidad de San José.
For his part, Araya said that anyone can be reported to the Ministerio Publico and that is does not mean that a crime was committed.
Araya says, in this case, the allegations are unfounded, and that his life is an open book. The presidential candidate added that the allegations surfaced in 2012 while he was in the race for the party’s presidential nomination.
