The Ministry of Works and Transport confirmed on Friday that legal proceedings to recover damages for breach of contract and the early departure of the M.V. Superfast Galicia were initiated on February 22nd.
It notes that on April 21st 2017, Inter-Continental Shipping Limited removed the M.V. Superfast Galicia from the sea bridge between Trinidad and Tobago, after attempting to get the Government to enter into a five-year agreement without competitive tender.
The Ministry says as a measure of its commitment to protecting the interest and welfare of citizens, the Government stands resolute in its quest to ensure that citizens would be held to ransom by any entity that has been entrusted with the responsibility of providing a service to the State.
