Decree: Mulino added that today the President of the Republic would sign an executive order regulating this decision, with the aim of making it clear to the community that this decision has been made on instructions from the President in order to bring transparency and clarity until the implementation of the process of electronic visas is completed. This move comes after the corruption scandal generated over the alleged payment of bribes to officials of the National Immigration Service to grant visas to citizens of Chinese origin. (Mi Diario)
Editor's Comment: OK, so now we have a Director of Immigration that we don't trust to issue visas because she got caught selling visas (but we're not firing her), a Minister of Tourism who can't travel to the United States because embassy officials suspect he has links to drug traffickers so they yanked his visa (but we're not firing him), a Director of the National Police who participating in the kidnapping of US Citizens with allegations of war crimes (but we're not firing him). Anyone noticing a pattern here?
