NGOs in Peru Accused of Irregularities

    Some 34 non-governmental organizations operating in Peru were found to have allegedly committed irregularities, according to the 2009 audit plan of the Peruvian International Cooperation Agency, or ACPI, which surveyed 100 NGOs. Misuse of facilities, submission of false information, failure to submit documents, and the use of resources for a different purpose constitute these irregularities, said Carlos Pando Sanchez, ACPI’s executive director. ACPI, according to Sanchez, cannot terminate the operations of any NGO, El Comercio reports.
