Engineers of the company, involved in one of the biggest corruption scandals

in Latin America over the payment of bribes to get state contracts, participated this month in two approval meetings held by the airport, as part of the process to bid for two contracts that total $8.8 million.

Duboy said that “having attended a certification meeting in the past week does not mean that they are going to present an offer or participate in a tender “, and added that if they did they would be disqualified.

Panama’s Administration  Attorney General, Rigoberto González, was more emphatic, reports La Prensa and said that the company should not participate in any public act, and should refrain from carrying out any management related to public events.

President Juan Carlos Varela has resisted calls for Duboy’s resignation after admitting to asking Odebrecht for donations to the ruling party’s campaign.
