Farewell letter from António Mexia of EDP: “It was an extraordinary trip over 15 years”

In his farewell letter, the manager highlights the growth that the electric company has had since 2006, the year in which he assumed his leadership. “This is certainly the most difficult decision of my professional life, above all because it results from a context of incomprehensible justice. But I take it thinking about EDP ”.

He touched on the CMEC process: "Process based on a fantasy and purely speculative construction, without any adherence to the truth of the facts"

Decision to leave EDP was taken “regardless of the decision that may be handed down by the Lisbon Court of Appeal”, guarantees the manager in his farewell letter from EDP. António Mexia maintains his “complete determination” so that “the absence of any illegitimate benefits for EDP, as well as the legality of all decisions taken,” is clearly demonstrated during the years in which he led the electricity company. The manager also says that the investigation was "artificially drawn out".
