NPP to wait for details on FBI raid in Toa Baja
SAN JUAN – Gov.-elect Ricardo Rosselló’s campaign director, Elías Sánchez, reacted Tuesday afternoon to an FBI raid in Toa Baja, and said they are waiting for details to decide how to act with regard to the town’s former mayor, current electoral commissioner Aníbal Vega Borges.
“The NPP [New Progressive Party] is obviously aware of everything regarding its respective officials. What we would like is a little more information as to what the raid respond to-if it involves the municipality’s internal employees or if it involves another type of action from other officials. That is information we don’t know. There have been many raids related to employee schemes at the municipal Housing Department level or the municipal Health Department level in various other cases, so there isn’t much information in that direction. What I can tell you is that this party will be acting immediately if knowledge of any information is gained,” Sánchez said.
When asked if the NPP would take measures if Vega Borges were implied in the federal investigation, he responded, “Of course, without a doubt.”
