Maldives to take over GMR airport despite court order
MALE (Reuters) - The Maldives government will take control of an airport managed by GMR Infrastructure(GMRI.NS), its defence minister said on Monday, despite an order from a Singapore court suspending the cancellation of GMR's $511 million project.
The government will take control of the airport, located in the capital Male, from Saturday, defence minister and acting transport minister Mohamed Nazim told a press conference.
GMR on Monday won a stay order from a Singapore court on the cancellation of Maldives' biggest foreign investment project and would continue to operate the airport as normal, the company said.
