The managing director of Agbar’s Aquagest urban water cycle concession in Santiago (Galicia) was jailed on remand last Friday for alleged involvement in the so-called Manga investigation into the corrupt awarding of public contracts.

According to judicial sources, telephone intercepts recorded José Luis Míguez discussing with city officials how to ensure the renovation of Aquagest’s concession, which is due to expire in 2019. The Santiago concession, serving a population of 100,000, is one of Agbar’s oldest, dating back to 1971.

The suspects in the Manga case – from the private and public sectors – are facing a variety of charges including bribery, illegal inducements and illicit use of privileged information, according to the Galician high court.

An Agbar spokesman confirmed to GWI that “conversations have taken place in the last two years about the possiblity of new infrastructure investments” in Santiago. He also said that Míguez has been relieved of his duties.
