Odebrecht must be terminated
Santo Domingo.- National Committee against Climate Change, CNLCC, on Thurs. demanded that the purchasing and procurement agency cancel the contract for the Punta Catalina coal-fired power plant and others with Odebrecht, and permanently disqualify it as a State contractor.
The Committee also demanded that the government investigate the officials who took the US$92 million bribe which Odebrecht confessed to having paid in exchange for infrastructure contracts nationwide. “The exact amounts of the overvaluation of these works and other illegal actions have yet to be determined.”
