In 2018, the Tabaré Vázquez administration had paid just over a million dollars. Now it sold for less than 18% of that value.

The Government of Uruguay auctioned US $ 180,000 on presidential plane acquired during the mandate of Tabaré Vázquez for just over a million dollars.

The aircraft had already had a first auction last July, but there were no offers that matched the floor of $ 350,000, so this time it went on sale without base.

As reported by the Uruguayan Ministry of Defense through its Twitter account, the bid has been developed between two previously “authorized” stakeholders, who had already made a “corresponding deposit.”

For his part, the Minister of Defense, Javier García, considered that the auction was carried out in a “public” and “transparent” manner, while criticizing the original purchase of the aircraft, “with a absolutely disproportionate value. “ “Uruguay is an austere country. The tastes of the rulers should not be made with public money,” he remarked.

The Defense portfolio has not provided details about the buyer, but the newspaper The Observer states that is Argentine, without giving further details.

Meanwhile, the president of the Finishers Association, Mario Molina, revealed that there were five interested in acquiring the aircraft.

The plane had been acquired in February 2018 by the administration of Tabaré Vázquez with the aim of making it multipurpose. At that time a little more than a million dollars was paid to businessman Carlos Bustin, so the auction price was less than 18% of the purchase.

García announced in August a new auction sale and promised to coordinate with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Migration Ministry to give “all the facilities” to people who wanted to travel to Uruguay to see the plane.
