The current president of Antel Gabriel Gurméndez testified this Friday as a witness in the framework of the criminal complaint before the prosecutor’s office investigating alleged irregularities in the construction of the Antel Arena complex.

Although Gurméndez said that he cannot give details about what he declared, he questioned how the scenario was set up.

“Here there has been a systematic action outside of Antel’s legal duties, by authorities that did not take due care of public money, which cost us Uruguayans around US$120 million,” he commented.

Gurméndez said that the entire construction process was developed with “little crystallinity and transparency” to the processes. He commented that all the observations of the Court of Accounts were ignored. “The questions of the legislators were not answered,” he commented.

The current president of Antel said that the construction was carried out through direct contracts and not through tenders. “It became the exception to the norm, in files that are incomplete,” he added.

“There has been damage to the administration,” he commented.

When the data was presented auditIn December 2020, Antel reported that the final cost of the work was US$118 million. That amount is almost triple what Carolina Cosse had reported in 2013 – when she was president of the state company.
