The administration of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, who was sharply critical of President Donald Trump after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico last year, is reportedly being investigated for alleged corruption.
In a report from El Vocero de Puerto Rico, the FBI is investigating several suppliers in a probe launched after former procurement director Yadira Molina filed a lawsuit claiming she faced punishment for reporting illegal activities to the local comptroller.
The investigation has since grown to include several contractors, the news outlet reported, according to Epoch Times.
Carlos Osorio, a spokesman for the FBI in San Juan, told Epoch Times last October the agency received several complaints of alleged corruption in the distribution of relief goods, and that it was required to look into the matter.
