Peruvian Skanska employees released
We are sincerely grateful to confirm the fact that our Peruvian Skanska employees taken hostage Monday April 9 in Kepashiato, a town near the city of Cusco, in Peru have been released.
“It is hard to express the relief and comfort I feel over the fact that our colleagues now can reunite with their families and return home", says Johan Karlström, CEO and President Skanska.
We can confirm that they are at good health given the circumstances.
“It is with the deepest gratitude that we would like thank our client Transportadora de Gas del Perú, TGP, the Peruvian Government and the authorities, and Construcciones Modulares for their invaluable cooperation. We would also like to express our most sincere condolences for the deceased Peruvian Army Captain Nancy Flores Paucar and hope for the prompt recovery of those injured as a consequence of violence carried out the passed week,” continues Johan Karlström, CEO and President Skanska.
All actions with the kidnappers have been handled by the Peruvian authorities and Skanska will not comment any further on the details of their release.
