    Chilean congress makes unprecedented mea culpa on several corruption cases

    “I recognize that many times we have not lived up to what the citizenry expected of us”, said Senate President Patricio Walker, in a ceremony in Valparaiso

    The Chilean Congress made an unprecedented mea culpa on Tuesday for a series of corruption cases involving lawmakers that have eroded public confidence in the institution. In the first review of the state of the Congress in its 204-year history, lawmakers acknowledged the damage caused by corruption, including accusations of tax fraud leveled against four opposition figures, two of them members of Congress.
