JURGEN BALZAN TRANSPORT Malta's decision to award a service concession for a floating dock in the Grand Har- bour without issuing a call for tender or an expression of inter- est has irked a number of compa- nies which would have submitted a bid had the authority issued a public call. This week, the controversial de- cision was the subject of a judicial protest filed by a private company against Transport Malta execu- tive chairman James Piscopo. The company, Woman In Management Ltd, filed a judicial protest against Transport Malta chairman James Piscopo and demanded that the concession awarded to Melita Shipyard Ltd is repealed since it is in breach of competition laws as determined by the European Court of Jus- tice. MaltaToday is also informed that another firm filed an official complaint with transport minis- ter Joe Mizzi, however questions sent to the ministry to confirm this remained unanswered be- fore going to print.
