Financial Information Act Concerns Employers

A bill that would infringe the privacy of information relating to citizens and business has risen alarms in the Superior Council of Private Enterprise.

Thursday, May 10, 2012

The future Financial Analysis Unit (UAF in Spanish) would have excessive discretion to request information from public and private entities, said President of the Superior Council of Private Enterprise (COSEP), Jose Adan Aguerri.

The leader also stressed the need to curb the excessive powers that the UAF would have, as this will prevent affecting the constitutional rights of Nicaraguans who would be threatened if the legal opinion becomes law, reported

"What we have told the government technical team is that this can not be a unit to investigate all Nicaraguans, but it must investigate people who cause red flag alerts," said Aguerri.
