Grupo México lawsuit against government for Mayan Train ‘takes AMLO by surprise’ – El Financiero

Grupo México’s lawsuit against the government for canceling and handing over the construction contracts for section 5 of the Mayan Train to the Ministry of Defense (Sedena) took President Andrés Manuel López Obrador by surprise.

According to the president, the government had reached an agreement with Grupo México after having terminated its contract early for not complying with the construction of the section that goes from Playa del Carmen to Tulum.

“An agreement is going to be sought because they worked and invested and they want an amount for what they did and the technicians Fonatur maintain that it is not that amount the one that corresponds to them, that is, they are wanting to charge more or Fonatur pay less as they want to understand, ”he explained.

However, the newspaper Reforma announced on November 21 that Grupo México filed a second lawsuit against the Federal Government for canceling its contract on July 8 and awarding it to Sedena.

“It strikes me that I sent word to Germán Larrea, owner of Grupo México, to seek a negotiation, that the military engineers will prepare an opinion for us and that if he accepted that opinion to determine how much to pay and he sent me to say that he accepted but oh surprise! Today…appears in the Reform that he is going to sue us and that it is already a million-dollar matter, but I did not know that he had already sued so it already became publicity, “he criticized.

At the beginning of August, López Obrador announced that the contract for the construction of section 5 of Grupo México had been revoked. After declaring the megaproject as a work of national security, it was decided that Sedena would assume control of the northern part while the southern section was granted to Mota Engil, Azvindi and ICA.

The consortium made up of Grupo México and Acciona Infraestructuras, to whom the contracts had originally been awarded, delivered the works carried out until July 15 for which Fonatur offered to pay 37.9 million pesosaccording to information obtained by Reform.
