GMR has filed a case against the Maldivian government and Maldives Airports Company Limited (MACL) at Singapore's Arbitration Court following government orders that the company cannot deduct USD27 as Airport Development Charge (ADC) and Insurance Fee from passengers. GMR revealed that the case was filed at the Arbitration Court not long after MACL had filed the case against the Insurance Fee at the Civil Court.
Haveeru has learned that in the agreement made between the government and GMR it is stated that if any problem cannot be solved through negotiation between the parties involved it will be solved through the Arbitration Court in Singapore.
It has not been known if whether any hearings have been held on the case.
An official from the Maldivian government also confirmed that GMR has filed a case at the Arbitration Court.
MACL had stated that GMR had been deducting USD27 from each passenger since January after former MACL Chairman Ibrahim â˜Bandhuâ™ Saleem had issued a signed consent letter to GMR to deduct the USD27 from the concession fee paid by the company to MACL thus MACL currently owes GMR USD1.5 million in ADC and Insurance fees.
Two hearings have been held on the case submitted by MACL to the Civil Court. GMR claims that it is deducting concession fee and ADC as per the agreement, but does not wish to further dwell on the matter as the case is ongoing at court.
