The company was barred for failing to present a $52 million bid bond on time, and the tender was eventually won by Altan.The Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) said it would countersue and that Rivada’s claims “do not correspond to the facts.”Now, Mexico City’s Eleventh District Court in Civil Matters ruled the SCT had no standing to sue Rivada or Declan Ganley, co-CEO of the company, El Financiero reported.Rivada’s lawsuit is still pending and the firm previously said it is confident its arguments will be analysed responsibly by the federal courts.The company’s ire with the SCT was evident in a November 2016 tweet by Ganley, stating: “No surprise, Rivada’s coverage plan is significantly higher than only opened bid. People of Mexico are being given a raw deal, which is sad.” Tags América Móvil emprenderá acciones legales contra el regulador mexicano Saleha joined Mobile World Live in October 2014 as a reporter and works across all e-newsletters – creating content, writing blogs and reports as well as conducting feature interviews…More Read more AltanMexicoRivada NetworksSCTlast_img
