Dahua Rigs $24 Million Bid, Alleges Brazilian Official, Dahua Denies

By Robert Wren Gordon, Published Apr 09, 2021, 08:55am EDT

A Brazilian State Deputy alleges that Dahua, in cahoots with local authorities, rigged a ~$24 million USD bid in its favor, in doing so violating Brazilian law. Dahua "unequivocally" denied this to IPVM.

Last month, Dahua was awarded a ~$24 million USD project with a Brazilian state's Department of Transportation. Inside this report, IPVM examines the alleged illegal activity and shares direct feedback from the Brazilian legislator who filed complaints naming Dahua to Brazilian authorities and from Dahua denying the allegations.
