By BBN Staff: Former Finance Officer for Immigration Department, Teresita Castellanos, today gave a heartfelt testimony to the Senate Select Committee conducting an inquiry into the findings of the Auditor General’s special report on Immigration.

According to Castellanos, she was “…in the belly of the beast.”

She told the committee that there was a culture of corruption among immigration officers who worked together like a, “fraternity”.

She revealed that she and former Director, Maria Marin, tried to set things straight but the officers disregarded their instructions.

She also told the committee that there was poor support for the department from the Ministry.

According to her, she was forced out of the Immigration Department while Candelaria Saldivar served as the CEO.
