P.U.P. Says I.E.’s Received Bloated Contracts by U.D.P. Government

Julius Espat

Espat also questioned the long list of contracts that have been awarded to I.E. by the U.D.P. government over the years.  He compared the Arguelles brothers to Imer Hernandez, another favourite contractor, who has received dozens of multimillion-dollar contracts from the government.
