PHILIPSBURG: The Court has found the claims of Alegria Real Estate N.V. against government without merit thus rejecting the company’s bid to get the denial of its water rights request turned around in its favor.
Algeria requested more than 13,000 square meters of water rights off its property in Beacon Hill, but was refused by government. This led to the company filing an objection with the administrative judge, claiming a valid and binding agreement was entered via confirmations from a former attorney of the Ministry of Spatial Planning VROMI, according to the VROMI press release.
“As the decision to refuse the requested water rights was properly motivated, the judge did not find any faults in said refusal to justify the claims of Alegria,” said VROMI.
Algeria and government still have other ongoing cases. Based on that, VROMI added that no additional information could be divulged other than the Court’s decision.
