ICTSI denies illegal reclamation in Manila

ICTSI denies illegal reclamation in Manila

Manila: International Container Terminal Services Inc (ICTSI) has denied construction of its new berth in Manila is illegal. At the weekend Manila vice mayor, Francisco Domagoso alleged the berth six at Manila International Container Terminal was being carried out "in secret" without the permission of the city government. "The development of a new berth is part of ICTSI's contractual obligations to the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA), and ICTSI has obtained approvals from the PPA pertaining to the development. Some of the approvals were from the city authorities, but obtained through the PPA," ICTSI said. The office of the mayor of Manila blamed overlapping jurisdiction between the PPA and other agencies. It said there was no need to "browbeat or harass" parties caught inbetween. [24/08/10]
