Colombia investigating contractors for starving children in embezzlement scheme

Colombia investigating contractors for starving children in embezzlement scheme

written by Stephen Gill April 26, 2016

Colombia’s authorities are targeting three contractors who are allegedly embezzled more than $10 million from vital school feeding programs on the Caribbean coast, local media reported.

The investigation was opened to investigate the actions of Leda Guerrero, Adiela Alvarez and Katia Rosado, who supposedly embezzled millions from $200 million ($600 billion pesos) feeding programs in 49 municipalities in three provinces.

As a consequence, at least half a dozen children in the region died of malnutrition while thousands are suffering food deficiencies.

“For the first time we put the face to those who hide behind these companies that have historically taken over the business” and allegedly stole the children’s school lunches, said Education Minister Gina Parody.
