A Marseille, le colossal marché de l’eau et de l’assainissement dans le viseur de la justice

Le parquet national financier a ouvert une enquête préliminaire pour favoritisme et prise illégale d'intérêts sur ce contrat évalué à 3,2 milliards d’euros.

Via Marseille, la revue de presse
Sylvain Rotillon's insight:

Le forum mondial de l'eau à Marseille avait tout du mélange des genres qui contribuent à entretenir un climat de suspicion autour du petit monde de l'eau. Après les années opaques de la filiale détenue par Veolia et Lyonnaise des Eaux, constituant une entorse à la concurrence pour laquelle il avait fallu que les services de Bercy bataillent durement pour arriver à un "décroisement," Marseille, siège du Conseil Mondial de l'Eau, présidé par le responsable de ladite filiale, avait fait un gros lobbying pour que le forum, organisé par le Conseil ait lieu dans la ville. L'organisation avait été pilotée par l'ancien préfet de la région, alors directeur de cabinet du Président Sarkozy, et une forte implication de l'élue marseillaise Martine Vassal. On trouvait là derrière l'événement des élus, une entreprise, une ville qui se retrouvent quelques années plus tard dans une renégociation de contrat très favorable à l'entreprise dont le président du Conseil est un salarié. Certains émettent des doutes sur la transparence de cette renégociation, sur la régularité du contrat. Certains voient le mal partout…
