In an unexpected turn within the government’s financial operations, an administrative error has come to light that directly affects the Colombian Congress. The Capitol Office of Budget and Finance has identified duplicate payments, and in some cases even tripled payments, on the payrolls of officials, including the legislators themselves. Those involved have been asked to verify their bank accounts to confirm if they have been recipients of these extra amounts.
This fact adds to a series of similar mistakes that have occurred in various state entities, which has put the control bodies on alert. An official communication has been issued addressed not only to congressmen, but also to their work teams and those in charge of contract supervision, urging them to proceed with the return of improper funds as of Monday, November 27.

The entity promises a prompt and efficient solution to correct this fiscal slip.
