The Public Prosecutor’s Office (MP) is  investigating 14 companies linked to a presumed embezzlement for about $ 300 million in employer-employee contributions to the detriment of the Social Security Fund (CSS) .

In addition, Garcia asked the CSS the list of officials in charge of handling the “keys” of the SIPE.
