Aqualia appeals the annulment of San Javier’s water concession contract to the TSJ.

Higinio Martínez.

The company Aqualia yesterday filed a contentious-administrative appeal with the High Court of Justice of the Region of Murcia for the annulment by the Central Administrative Court of Contractual Resources (Tacrc) of the agreement to award the concession contract for the public service of drinking water supply and sewerage of San Javier, valued at almost 250 million euros.

The Tacrc took this decision after upholding an appeal filed by Aguas de San Javier y La Manga del Mar Menor, SL (Gestagua) against the concession of the service to Aqualia. Another company, Hidrogea, has also lodged an appeal, although it has not been admitted by the court.

Aqualia’s appeal to the TSJ is a consequence of the “profound disagreement” with the Tacrc’s resolution, according to sources from the company in a press release. Aqualia criticises the “continuous smear campaign that certain digital media have been deploying against the company and the offer it has presented, which has conditioned the decision of the Administrative Court”. In his opinion, this is demonstrated “in the Tacrc’s own resolution, which includes inconsistent value judgements and attributes to the Public Prosecutor’s Office statements that in reality only appear in the document that the Pleamar party (local political formation) presented to the Public Prosecutor’s Office”.

Aqualia, whose head of the Levante delegation is Higinio Martínez, shows its “total conviction” that its offer is the “most beneficial for the municipality and the citizens of San Javier” and “is in accordance with the law in substance and form”. In this sense, this company owned by the services group FCC (Fomento, Construcciones y Contratas) emphasises that it will develop “all the actions within its reach” to defend its legitimate interests.
