Statement: The Prosecutor files the complaint of Badalona Council against the management of FCC

 

 

The Provincial Prosecutor of Barcelona has decided to file the investigation started as a result of the complaint made by Badalona Council regarding alleged irregularities by FCC in the management of the contract for street cleaning and wastes collection in Badalona. This was announced by various communications media in the last few days.

 

In this situation, FCC wishes to state the following:

 

  1. The filing of the complaint by the Prosecutor clearly shows that there is no basis whatsoever to show that FCC has committed any criminal act and has demonstrated the lack of rigour in the conclusions in the report prepared by Jordi Colomer Missé used by the Council as the basis to start the investigation. There are no facts that support the invoicing of non-existent items, which shows the value of the opinion and data provided by the Council’s municipal technicians.
  2. During the time for which the investigation has lasted, the company has strongly denied any irregularity in the contract with Badalona Council, stating that it has always acted within legality and within the framework of the contract with this Council. The company has always considered the Council’s complaint to be an unfounded attack aimed solely at damaging its image and reputation.
  3. The announced filing of the complaint by Badalona Council proves that the accusations made by the Council against the company lack foundation, the statements and the allegations made by various members of this Council being absolutely unfounded.
  4. As FCC has stated at all times and as has been ratified by the municipal technicians in the report they prepared for the investigation started by the Council, the company has from the start complied with the obligations in the contract and has at all times provided the services in accordance with the law, with the contract conditions and the Council’s own instructions, regardless of the political group heading the corporation, all of this always to the benefit of the Council and in the public interest.
  5. FCC has and will always defend itself against any attack on or impairment to its reputation and good name for which it reserves the exercising of all the legal actions within its reach to re-establish its honour and its image and to demand responsibilities.
  6. As part of this right to defend its good name, FCC has recently filed a complaint against the author of the municipal report for the damage to its reputation caused by the defamatory allegations in that report that were amplified by some members of Badalona Council and that were repeated in multiple media.
  7. Today, Justice announced the filing of the complaint and gives the reason to FCC Medio Ambiente, a company with great national and international prestige, which has been providing services to local councils and public institutions for more than 100 years and in which the public/private collaboration mode has generated high added value, contributing to the quality and well-being of the public and territories.
