And case No. 4522/2018 Commercial/Civil/Government/1 requesting the delegation of the Ministry of Justice experts to proceed with the conciliation evidenced by the final requests and the ruling to prove the renewal of the contractual agreements between the company and the Public Authority of Industry in continuation of the same lease agreement and to prevent disturbance by “PAI” and others.
The company asserts that it was not notified of the termination of the contract, or the evacuation of the site, or that there is an objection on its presence in any way before the end of the contractual period provided for in the contract, and that the eviction notice was only given on the date of 3/7/2018, i.e. after the contract entered into a renewal period without objection from “PAI”. The necessary legal measures will be taken to challenge the decision of evacuation in front of the courts.”
