Leonardo Flores’ resignation letter to Public TV.

a controversial official

Almost exactly a year ago, on Friday, April 23, Leo Flores surprisingly resigned from the position of head of Public TV, where he had been appointed just a week before, replacing Eliseo Álvarez.

Flores entered Public TV at the beginning of 2020. Álvarez held hands and as artistic manager. But when he was promoted as executive director, the ultra K sector demanded his resignation all week for his participation in an anti-Chavez documentary, for which he won Emmy Awards in 2016, when he was manager of news on Channel 41 in Miami.

That Emmy is for journalistic investigation Petare: the tomb of chavismoan allegation against the government of Nicolás Maduro and in favor of the Venezuelan opposition led by Henrique Capriles and Leopoldo López at the time.

After that week of glory, Flores left as artistic manager and I replaced Claudio Martínez, Undersecretary of Media and Public Communication of the national government.

New directions

Just now, back then, Flores decided to leave. According to reports, his new project is to set up a Latin American channel.

And until he appoints a new artistic manager, his channel activities will remain in the hands of officials he oversees, such as deputy manager Oscar Gómez Alé.

The first scandal: cash bags

The entire Flores affair was the result of a scandal that erupted on Public TV over the withdrawal of $ 11.4 million in cash bags.

Guillermo Siaira, Director of Administration and Finance, left first; Diego Pascual, Personnel Director; and Ernesto Molinero, Production Manager, who had contracts with Public TV and submitted their resignations, at Lufrano’s request.

After evicting those officials and interfering in the areas involved, authorities banned Alejandro de la Torre, deputy director of Administration and Finance, from entering the channel; Ariel Berliner, Deputy Production Manager; and Andrea Mendes Guimaraes, head of Accounting for Public TV.

Later, the General Syndicate of the Nation (SIGEN) fired Public TV’s “militant auditor,” Rolando Oreiro, based on a journalistic investigation by Clarín. The fact is that the auditor was supposed to investigate the illegal withdrawal of $ 11.4 million, but he was not regularly appointed, because he took a voluntary retirement as an INCAA auditor, which he ended up collecting a few months before he took over the RTA, and forged his affidavit to enter the RTA.
