SAN JUAN – Several witnesses could point directly at House Speaker Jaime Perelló Borras in having knowledge of corruption perpetrated at the legislative body by other “co-conspirators” along with federal convict Anaudi Hernández Pérez, various sources told Inter News Service (INS).
Testimony sitting in the federal district attorney’s office could include Hernández Pérez confronting Perelló about the delay in granting a contract to his company, 3Comm, and the speaker’s reply to calm him: “The contract will be yours.”
The House had initiated a request for proposals (RFP), which ended up being false, to change the lower chamber’s switchboard.
Similarly, authorities have evidence that Perelló received an envelope with $45,000 in cash by Lutgardo Acevedo after a boat ride with Hernández Pérez along the Boquerón coast a few months before the 2012 election, in the midst of his political campaign.
Inside an SUV with tinted windows, where all three sat, Perelló, who says he does not know how much money was inside the envelope, according to what INS was told, would have handed the package to Hernández Pérez, who was responsible for carrying out fundraising events for the campaign of the then-Popular Democratic Party minority representative.
