The police officer who has admitted to Nazi proclivities learned Friday that he was being fired for cause.
Earlier the Ministerio de Gobernación, Policía y Seguridad Pública said the man was being let go with responsibilidad patronal, meaning that he would receive significant severance pay.
The police officer made news when his photo showed up on a social Website along with a Nazi flag. He also was pictured giving an authoritarian salute.
Officials said he was being fired for having too many absences from work during the last year.
