President Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) acknowledged being surprised by the demand that Mexico Group filed for the cancellation and delivery of the construction contracts of the section 5 of the Mayan Train to the Secretary of National Defense (sedena).

And it is that, according to what was declared in the morning of this November 21, the owner of Grupo México, German Larreahad agreed to negotiate with the military engineers to prepare an opinion in order to determine the amount to be paid for early revocation of the documents.

“He sent me to say that he accepted. But oh surprise! Today it appears that he is going to sue them and that it is already a million-dollar matter,” declared the Chief Executive, who claimed to have been unaware of the dispute until Monday morning when it was published in the media. Reform.

“I didn’t know that he had already sued, so he already became advertising (…) Now I don’t know what led him to associate himself to mount the campaign against us (…) It surprises me.”

In 2022, the National Defense assumed control of the megaproject in the south of the country and hired new construction companies for the section that runs from Tulum to Ciudad del Carmen, in Quintana Roo. In view of said resolution, the National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism (phonatur) offered to pay 37.9 million pesos to the canceled builders.

In view of this, as reported Reform, Grupo México and Acciona Infraestructura filed two lawsuits against the Federal Government for the amount of compensation. A decision that took the president of Mexico by surprise because, according to what he said, he himself would have sent the Secretary of the Interior (Segob), Adam Augusto Lopezto negotiate the matter “and he answered yes”.

However, and along the same lines, López Obrador argued that the contract recession to Grupo México derived from a breach in the section mentioned. Reason for which the intervention of the companies Mota-Engil, IKA and Indi was agreed.

“They were notified that we needed that stretch and it was delivered to three companies (…) It matters a lot to us because we had all the protections there, ”he declared.

“They worked and invested and they want an amount for what they did and the Fonatur technicians maintain that this is not the amount that corresponds to them. I mean they want to charge more or Fonatur pay less”.
