Arraiján Mayor Pedro Sánchez Moro, who is being investigated by the third anti-corruption prosecutor for crimes against public administration, admitted Tuesday that nine players of the soccer team Santa Gema FC, of which he is the president, were on the municipal payroll.

Sanchez Moro, who also confirmed that players from Club Atlético Independiente (CAI) and Plaza Amador were also on the payroll, said the players have defined roles and actually did work for which they were paid.

The players were hired as drivers, inspectors and maintenance workers.

Prosecutor Zuleyka Moore has been investigating the case together with the Comptroller General for two months based on an anonymous complaint.

An audit found that up to 180 of the 450 municipal employees may have had unexplained absences from their jobs.

The mayor has said the investigation is politically motivated.
