Fishman-Foro-de-occidente-652x300

The Foro Occidente and Legislator, Luis Fishman, presented on Thursday 10 possible ways the government can get out of the concession contract with the OAS, the Brazilian company awarded the 30 year concession to rebuild the San José – San Ramón road.

Fishman enumerated the grounds he feels would cancel the contract and not cost the people. Of the points the legislator point out that the amount of the contract cannot increase more than 50% of the initial value and that the tolls to be charged on the road must be approved by the Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos (ARESEP).

On these points, questioned is the US$530 million dollar price tag, a cost many feel is over inflated and that the OAS is the one setting the toll charges.

The legislator added that it was also necessary to have had a preliminary hearing with the institutions involved in the project and that the  Contraloría General de la República (Comptroller) wrongly endorsed the awarding of the contract to Autopistas del Valle or OAs.

On the list, the group says the project lacks public interest,  then there’s the conflict of interest by the Minister of Transport, Pedro Castro, who is believed to have intervened in the bidding process, for up to 2012 Castro was an advisor to the contract firm.

Speaking on behalf of the Foro de Occidente, a group that has been a vocal opponent to the concession, is calling on Presidenta Laura Chinchilla to do the right thing and cancel the contract.
