Gov’t rallies behind embattled Labour Minister in definitive show of support
During a Cabinet meeting Tuesday morning, Triaca did not address former employee Sandra Heredia's accusations that he paid her under the table and used his influence to secure her a job at the Maritime Workers’ Union (SOMU).
“Sandra, don’t come. Don’t come or I’ll tell you to fuck off. You, dumbass!” he said.
In response to Heredia’s accusation that half of her salary had been paid to her ‘under the table,’ Triaca’s response was: “She had a formal contract”. He also claimed that his brother was Heredia's boss.
Legal manœuvres —some of which are undoubtedly politically motivated — continue against Triaca.
