After the tender, it was claimed that the Chinese company did not even provide documents on the safety of wagons to the tender commission. Y Auxiliar De Ferrocarriles SA, based in Spain, participated in the tender.
Upon determination that the company did not provide documents related to the safety of wagons, the relevant companies carried the matter to the judiciary.
