This from a few months ago adds some info to this confusing story "

It is again trying to attribute outrages and abuses of PAN ruling party to "request Gov.-elect Claudia Pavlovich "as he tried a few weeks ago Commissioner sport Vicente Sagrestano when he fired a hundred coaches or high performance when officials middling beneficiaries of the incoming administration are said and trampled rights of bureaucrats.

But this trend was extrapolated case and claims of a corrupt ruling caste, which already output insists slapping all the way resorting to vulgar extortion and blackmail, as described by publicly denouncing the company director, Infrastructure and Diamond Industrial Projects, SA de CV, William Garduza Urgell, against the Sonora tourism commissioner, Javier Tapia Camou . Directed to Claudia, the manager said in a short letter detailing the adventures since December last year when the company he represents He won the tender for the construction of the Home Port of Puerto Penasco, which convened by the Port Authority of Sonora, headed by hotelier provides a contract for just over 215 million pesos.

Claudia Pavlovich

The assignment of the execution of the work was December and all seemed well with the delivery of about 19 million, of 64.5 million pesos in advance stated in the contract award and that was it, because mid- January this year, Tapia Camou spoke to recommend reliable suppliers and indeed, they were very confident of the corrupt, because their contributions were for a price of 30 and up to 40 percent compared to market prices and therefore were rejected. The reaction of the hotelier got public officials, was to retain the rest of the delivery of the advance, as well as mechanical soil, access permissions and dumping, exclusive arrangements of the Port Authority, without which the work can not be performed legally and also receive "incisive" pressure to cede the contract to Constructora Manzanillo SA de CV To complete the picture and how they did not give, without further excuses, they notified the rescission of the contract, so they turned to the Ministry of Public Administration, in the context of a conciliation process, reschedule the start of work for the month of May.

Vicente Sagrestano

To no longer the story of another story of corruption in this ball of thieves led by Governor Guillermo Padres, in his letter to Claudia, the company representative tells you that following the outcome of the election on June 7, Tapia Camou reinforced its pressure to cede the contract to Constructora Manzanillo, but now with the argument that these are the wishes of the elected governor and also to people close to him and has moored at the next administration. For to this manager whose company is based in the state of Veracruz maybe it is a novelty to be indexed by the Moche 30 percent as a condition to perform a work in Sonora, but by no means is to Sonora entrepreneurs, suppliers and service providers, who throughout this administration has financed the current financial bonanza parents and his gang because they have no other option than to be part of that chain of corruption. The curious thing is that this Garduza Urgell in elections 2006 was deputy PAN candidate to federal deputy by the state of Veracruz, besides being ruler for that party in the town of Freshwater, which and apparently, such a background did not prevent to lift the flaps to the PAN government Sonora.
