Batres reaffirms conflict of interest by lawyer who "collaborated" in DNV report by L12

The Government Secretary, Marti Batresconsidered that the lawyer of the Norwegian company DNV who they question of course conflict of interests -since he would have a history of litigation against President Andrés Manuel López Obrador-, he incurred in it because he was the one who delivered the root cause analysis of Line 12 that the CDMX Government rejects and disqualifies.

Three months before they finally agreed to make transparent the third and last report of the Norwegian company with more than 150 years of experience—after part of the content was leaked by the newspaper EL PAÍS—, the Head of Government, claudia sheinbaumquestioned the results of the opinion and launched against the legal representative, Hector Solomon Galindo Alvarado.

He said he “showed up” for the latest opinion. Despite the fact that the company has repeatedly rejected Galindo Alvarado’s conflict of interest and has explained that he has worked at the company since 2019 and did not participate in the report, Sheinbaum and Batres support their rejection.

Martí Batres acknowledged that Galindo Alvarado did not participate in the opinion, but accused that the problem is for another reason and questioned that people who are not from DNV defend him.

“It is very curious that entities totally unrelated to this process come out to say that the lawyer has no conflict of interest, the only thing they do is think that he does have a conflict of interest.

“If the government is saying ‘this report is incomplete and we don’t accept it,’ then a lawyer comes in to make it look like the report is finished and delivered,” he said.
