State Congress to challenge Aguakan Amparo

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Quintana Roo Congress will challenge the protection granted to Aguakan to continue serving four of the state’s municipalities. On Tuesday, the Legislative Branch of the State filed a complaint against the agreement by which the Eighth District Court of Quintana Roo extended the provisional suspension in favor of Desarrollos Hidráulicos de Cancún SA de CV or Aguakan.

In late December, Aguakan was granted an Amparo against the ending of its extended 30-year concession.

Humberto Aldana Navarro, Presidente de la Comisión de Puntos Constitucionales de la XVIILegislatura, says they will challenge the issued Amparo. He says despite Aguakan’s protection, they will defend the cancellation of the 30-year extension that was granted early.

Aguakan has made allegations that the State Legislature exceeded its functions and is not competent to address the issue. However, Aldana Navarro says there were elements missing in the the form of two Articles which makes the extension illegal. He also says there is a breach of contract by Aguakan.

Aldana Navarro, who also heads the special commission to monitor the Aguakan case, said they are in the process of an investigation to determine the disappearance of more than 1.5 billion pesos.

The initial Aguakan contract was finished as of December 31, 2023, at which time they were expected to hand over the services to CAPA.
