Mexico begins inquiry into Galway businessman’s corruption allegations

Galway Bay fm newsroom – The Mexican government’s department of communications has begun an internal inquiry into allegations of corruption made by Galway businessman Declan Ganley’s Rivada Networks.

Rivada alleged late last year it was wrongly excluded from bidding for a contract to build a $7 billion wholesale mobile phone network, a project known as Red Compartida.

The contract has been awarded to the only other bidder, a Mexican-US consortium known as Altan, which has denied any wrongdoing.

According to the Irish Times, Mexican officials have begun an examination of Rivada’s allegations.

Rivada will be expected to submit evidence to the inquiry of its allegations.
