BLATANT DISREGARD: Workers at the JKIA building the offending wall against NET ruling 

Swissport Kenya, an international cargo handling firm based at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport has ignored National Environment Tribunal (NET) ruling and proceeded with the construction of a perimeter wall opposed by its’ neighbor Transglobal Cargo Centre (TCC).

Reports indicate that the contractors of Swissport took advantage of the long Easter weekend to proceed with a development which had been stopped by NET as per petition number 175 of 2015 jointly lodged by Cofek and its’ corporate member TCC.

Before then, Swissport Kenya through its CEO Mr Jeroen de Clercq had on January 18, 2017 written to TCC requesting for an out of court of settlement.

“I refer to the above case between Cofek and Transglobal vs Nema and Swissport. In consideration of the ruling of 16th December 2016 and the recommendation of the Tribunal to seek an out of court solution by the principal parties, we wish to propose for a meeting between your structural engineers and ours.

“The aim of the proposed meeting is for your experts to discuss the dispute around the perceived structural impact on Transglobal’s building in a bid to arrive at an amicable resolution.
