January 14, 2013
Rio Negro Governor Alberto Weretilneck directly blamed Bariloche mayor Omar Goye having paid 100 thousand pesos to cooperative members to loot shops.
Looters “belong to a labor union, with political ramifications in Rosario and in some parts of the suburbs,” said the official.
“These are people who worked throughout the year along with the town of Bariloche, in a permanent aggressive situation. It is a cooperative that the day of looting, the mayor paid 100,000 pesos, supposedly for work,” he added.
The Cooperative May 1 “is within different organizations, it doesn’t have a visible leader” and said that in 2012 he was hired to do sidewalks at various locations in the city.
