APT Global to be fined P211M for MRT glitches

MRT-3 maintenance provider Autre Porte Technique Global Inc. (APT Global) was ordered by the Commission on Audit (COA) to pay P211 million for failure to comply with the contract.

Penalties were for failure to deliver trains, defective escalators and elevators, and half line operations, among others.

APT Global, however, tagged the audit recommendation as unfair. This report aired over CNN Philippines' Network News on May 14, 2015.
