MARBELLA’S La Bajadilla port project could be delayed for years after Sheikh Al-Thani appealed a decision to annul his contract to build the site.
The businessman has appealed the ruling of the High Court of Justice of Andalucia (TSJA), which annuled the concession of the works granted to the Temporary Union of Companies, headed by the Malaga FC owner.
It came after continued delays to construction and lack of payments for sub-contracts.
The Public Ports Agency of Andalucia had to take over management of the project last March due to the inaction of the Sheikh’s companies.
If the courts allow Al-Thani’s appeal, it could be months or even years before the project sees works begin.
It would be a blow to locals, who will lose out on hundreds of jobs and countless expected economic benefits.
If the appeal is rejected, the project will most likely go to Group Alfil and Marinas, who were the second highest bidders when it was first announced.
