This morning, the National Committee to Combat Climate Change, CNLCC, warned the Director of Public Contracts, Yokasta Guzman that she will be submitted to the action of the court if all of the Odebrecht contracts are not rescinded and disqualify this company for life as a contractor of the Dominican State.

In a letter deposited with the General Directorate of Public Contracts in the course of a gathering held before the headquarters of that institution, the group says that despite the fact that more than two months have elapsed since they handed over, on December 29, a letter requesting that that agency applies Law 340-06 of Public Procurement, has not provided any of the requested measures contemplated by that legislation against Odebrecht, nor offered an explanation of its inaction and its silence.

It recalled that when they delivered their summon on December 29, the original and official version of the document of confession by the Odebrecht council before the New York State County Court of December 21, 2016.

It explained that the General Directorate of Public Contracts as the governing body of Law 340-06 does not depend for its action under that legislation on any other dependency of the Public Administration or any judicial authority.

It explained that this entity is requesting from the General Directorate of Public Procurement, the termination of all Odebrecht contracts, first of all that of Punta Catalina, the disqualification of that company in perpetuity as an tender of the State, open an investigation of the exact value of the overvaluation of the projects and their recovery as well as the bribes, and punish both the bribers and public officials who received bribes.

It stated that “if, within a period of ten days, as of this date, you and the institution you direct, you have not proceeded to implement the requested measures that are contemplated by Law 340-06 of Public Procurement in said Articles, we shall proceed to bring you to justice for grave breach of function and for complicity with Odebrecht. “

It pointed out that the actions that they demand against the Brazilian consortium are contained in articles 11,14, 36, 65 and 66 of the Public Procurement Law.

“You and this organization are obliged to comply strictly with these articles, or else you will become complicit wit Odebrecht and its illegal actions,” it said, referring to Yokasta Guzmán and the Public Contracting Directorate.

It affirmed that “every day that passes in which you and that Direction do not do what the law orders you, your professional prestige is adversely affected as a public official, the public credibility and legitimacy of that body, and respect and trust In the institutionality of the Dominican State. “
The members of the Committee carried out during this morning’s rally a banner saying “Cancellation of the Odebrecht contract at Punta Catalina, no to pollution, no to corruption”.
