Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: The FBI Is Investigating Corruption in Puerto Rico, and BDO Seems to Be at the Center of It

from Comments on: The FBI Is Investigating Corruption in Puerto Rico, and BDO Seems to Be at the Center of It.

UPDATE, July 10, 2019, 3pmET: The FBI has arrested two former government officials. Albert Velázquez Piñol was also arrested. For a live tweet thread of those new developments, follow @nataliarodmed, who was at the official July 10 press conference. A full story with the indictments can be found here.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — In the last couple of weeks, the government of Puerto Rico has been riddled with multiple political scandals, from corruption accusations to possible extortion, a little bit of influence peddling, and multiple resignations. Among these recent events, a local firm with years worth of government contracts kept popping up: BDO Puerto Rico.

BDO Puerto Rico is an accounting firm established in 2001 that had been accepting government contracts since 2012. In that time, they amassed over $63 million in contracts in multiple government departments.

BDO’s involvement in the government is that similar to a spider’s web, with contracts including the Departments of Treasury, Education, and the Health Insurance Administration (ASES, in Spanish), all currently under federal investigation by the FBI.

At the center of the web (and investigation) is Alberto Velázquez Piñol, a consultant for BDO. The firm held multimillion-dollar contracts with ASES (whose director, Ángela Ávila, was forced to resign due to the federal scrutiny) where Velázquez Piñol served as a consultant, but some employees described his role as administrative, and recently Velázquez Piñol has had ties to the statehood party (PNP, in Spanish). Before BDO, he was part of former governor Luis Fortuño’s administration, where he was under scrutiny for spending government funds on personal items and trips.

In recent weeks, two members of governor Ricardo Rosselló’s (PNP) inner circle have been summoned to testify in front of a grand jury at a San Juan federal court.

The same day former Secretary of Treasury was fired by Rosselló for calling his administration an “institutional mafia,” Rosselló’s chief of staff, Ricardo Llerandi, was summoned by a grand jury.

“…I appeared before the Federal Court before a grand jury, responding to a request for documents related to Alberto Velázquez and his duties,” he said through a written statement.

A few days later, a recording of Llerandi selling tickets to private PNP events was released by NotiUno.

On Monday, Rosselló’s former legal advisor, Alfonso Orona, went to the Inspector General’s office to provide information on Velázquez Piñol’s involvement in ASES after Hurricane María. Then on Tuesday, he presented himself in front of the grand jury to answer similar inquiries.

In addition, BDO is who Raúl “Raulie” Maldonado Nieves, son of the former Secretary of Treasury, name-dropped when accusing governor Rosselló of corruption. Maldonado Nieves said in a Facebook post that Rosselló allegedly asked BDO’s president to alter documents from Unidos por Puerto Rico.

A few days prior, an unnamed source told El Nuevo Día that the FBI is also looking into irregularities in the contracts BDO held with the Department of Education while Julia Keleher was in charge. Since 2016, BDO held contracts with Education that surpassed $16 million.

That same week, the government terminated all contracts with BDO, most of which expired on June 30. Afterward, reports came in that BDO had fired almost 40 employees after losing the government contracts.

“At no time have we been informed of any irregularities in our performance under government-related contracts. We have placed ourselves at the disposal of the authorities to clarify any doubt and cooperate with any information that is required of us,” said Gabriel Hernández, managing partner of BDO Puerto Rico through a statement.

Although the FBI has remained tight-lipped about the details of the investigation, on June 28, they released a statement asking for cooperation from citizens and promising to protect whistleblowers.

“These investigations began with information provided by individuals who observed this conduct, and recent history has shown that information provided by the public can and does greatly increase the chances of a successful prosecution of those responsible. We therefore ask the public and private sectors and the community for any additional evidence of which they are aware,” they wrote.

The federal agency then provided guidelines of the information they are seeking.

There is currently no mention of Velázquez Piñol and the FBI’s inquiries on BDO’s website. More information will most likely surge in the following weeks. Latino Rebels reached out to BDO for comment but has not heard back at the time of publishing.

You can read the entire history of BDO’s contracts below.

Brooklyn Eagle: House of Solutions is fighting the climate crisis with drag queens and plant parties

A new cultural space on Governors Island is taking a different approach to fighting the global climate crisis: art and performance.

House of Solutions, located within a historic 19th-century building in Nolan Park, routinely hosts exhibits, workshops and residency programs with the goal of building solutions through innovative means. Its motto: “Where creativity sparks environmental action.”

The museum, on view through October in collaboration with the Climate Reality Project, is the brainchild of Tara DePorte, a Brooklyn resident and founder of the Human Impacts Institute, a Williamsburg nonprofit.

The organization, created in 2011 to generate new approaches to tackling social and environmental issues, has hosted exhibits in Berlin and Marseille and is located at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Williamsburg branch.

“I was starting to see a lack of effective action on climate change,” DePorte told the Brooklyn Eagle. “There was a communication gap that we needed to experiment with how to fill.”

In an effort to fill that void, DePorte created HII, which uses levity, inspiration and creativity — rather than fear-mongering — to make the climate conversation “approachable, not apocalyptic.”

She said that she hoped to shift the conversation away from the direness of the climate crisis.

“We’re really trying to get people to speak creatively about solutions and not just the problem,” she said. “When we talk about solutions, particularly when it’s for the general public, we try to give different options.

“Not everyone wants to be a protestor. Maybe they would do it in very rare occasions, but that’s not their preferred method of engagement.”

One alternative option to demonstrating was House of Solutions. The concept was simple: host unique, fun and approachable events with the goal of bringing the average person — not just environmentalists and policy experts — into the climate discussion.

The opening party, dubbed “Climate is a Drag,” featured a climate-themed drag competition where participants performed skits about plastic pollution, the Green New Deal and becoming a climate activist.

“We need big, bold and beautiful climate action, and whose better to communicate that then drag queens?” DePorte said.

On Saturday, the museum hosted a dance party in a plant-filled room. It was aptly named “Dance Your Plants Off.” The music played mimicked the conversations that trees have between each other with their root structures.

Flyers were also passed out with information on how people can help with reforestation efforts in New York City and around the world.

With an ongoing exercise called “Dear Tomorrow: Letters to the Future,” participants write to their future selves, children or grandchildren, about what they did personally to fight the climate crisis.

The prompt asks: “What did you do to ensure a safe and secure future?” Contributors are also encouraged to record how they think about climate change and what new personal actions they promise to take now.

The space will host a “Wild Walk,” an animal nature workshop and a lecture on the “Intersectionality of Climate Change, Biodiversity Loss, Human Justice and Resilience” on Saturday, Aug. 10, as part of their programming.

DePorte argued that even in a concrete jungle like Brooklyn — where access to nature can be restricted — it is still important to have conversations about how to solve the climate crisis.

“I love the idea of being able to create that harmony and make a city as big and crazy as Brooklyn — and also New York City — really work with our natural systems,” she said. “It’s such an amazing challenge. People treasure their access to nature here in a different way because it is special and limited.”

House of Solutions is on view through October. See a full list of events here.

The search and search warrant that the Department of Justice (DJ) is using to obtain the telephones of some of the participants of the Telegram chat “WRF” that keeps Governor Ricardo Rosselló on the verge of resignation or residence establishes that, by At least, the participants of the conversation may have violated provisions of the Law of Ethics that constitute a felony.
