Former Bluesky C.E.O. sues Amper Chairman for $46million

The rift between Chief Executive Officer of Amper’s Bluesky Pacific Group, Aoe’e Adolfo Montenegro, and his former employers continue to deepen.

Today, it has been revealed that Aoe’e is suing Amper S.A. and its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jaime Espinosa de los Monteros, for US$20 million (T$46million).

The lawsuit also names American Samoa-based Bluesky Communications as a defendant.

Filed this week in the High Court of American Samoa by Aoe’e Adolfo Montenegro, the lawsuit accuses Espinosa de los Monteros of “fraud, bad faith, breach of contract, and other misconduct.”

“We assert and are prepared to prove that Espinosa engaged in fraud and other deceptive conduct while carrying out his duties as President and Chairman of Amper (BME:AMP), which is a publicly-traded Spanish corporation,” Aoe’e said in a statement. 

“His unethical and improper conduct has caused me financial and reputational harm for which I seek restitution, while also exposing the Bluesky Pacific Group to legal and possibly regulatory repercussions.”

More details soon.
