The Ministry of Infrastructure has secured a court ruling overturning the decision of the Sixth Administrative Court of Appeal (Kyiv) that suspended the ministry’s order No. 16 of January 21, 2020, that approved the results of the concession tender for the Kherson commercial seaport.
Minister of Infrastructure Vladyslav Kryklyi announced this on his Facebook page, the CFTS portal reports.
“The court granted the ministry’s petition and canceled the measures to secure the claim. Therefore, nobody will stop the concession. We will protect each of our investors and each concession,” Kryklyi said.
As reported, on February 4, the Sixth Administrative Court of Appeal decided on February 4 to suspend the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure’s order No. 16 of January 21, 2020, that approved the results of the concession tender for the Kherson commercial seaport. The lawsuit was filed by Kherson Seaport Special Company LLC (a consortium formed by Ascet Shipping and Global Grain), which asked the court to declare the decision to prevent the company from participating in the concession tender unlawful and cancel it.
The Ministry of Infrastructure appealed against the decision.
