On August 16, 2013 Noticias Terra reported the Supreme Court has filed a complaint alleging that local officials in Lonquimay provided illegal protection to a local brothel. The ordered investigation includes the mayor of Lonquimay, Luis Rogers, Deputy Commissioner Carlos Adrián Alanis and the owner of the “Good Night” whiskey bar, Carlos Fernández.

The case began in 2009 after a female police officer in Lonquimay discovered a working relationship between Alanis and the owners of the whiskey bar.

The mayor has defended the operation of the establishment, stating it serves as a source of entertainment for truck drivers. Read Article
