  • The Sheikh made his intention to appeal the decision known through a telephone call to the Andalucía Public Port Agency

Sheikh Al-Thani, head of the Nas Marbella group who holds the concession for the La Bajadilla port project, last week communicated by telephone, through a legal representative, his intention to appeal the decision of the Andalucía Public Port Agency (APPA) to withdraw the concession for the project.

According to the EFE agency, it was lodged with the Dispute Tribunal in Seville and it called for the suspension of the decision taken by APPA. However, sources at Fomento (the Public Works ministry) insist that beyond the phone call, there is no record of such an appeal, nor any knowledge of its supposed contents, and that they would continue the search for a new concession holder.
