Metro of Bogota First Line - First Tranch — Request IV

Country: Colombia

Reception date: February, 15 2022

Current Status: Closed


8 residents and merchants of the city of Bogota, led by Mr. Carlos Adrián Flórez García.

Summary of the Request

The Request describes a potential damage to the Requester's property and living conditions derived from the expropriation of his residential property, within the framework of the Project.

The Requester alleges an incorrect appraisal of his property, since the amount offered would be less than an appraisal cited by the Requester. On the other hand, he argues that the loss of profits was not considered and that the expropriation would be depriving him of his livelihood.

The Request claims that no payment derived from the expropriation has been made, as well as inconsistencies in the notification process and noncompliance with the Project's General Resettlement Plan.

This Request is related to the compliant MICI-BID-CO-2021-0179.
