The judicial review hearing of Grenada Hotel Ltd vs the Government of Grenada has been postponed.
Owing to the lack of representation by management of the Grenadian by Rex Resorts, legal representative of the company, Dickon Mitchell, petitioned in court for the adjournment of the matter.
The presiding judge, Justice Gerhard Wallbank, made the decision in all favour of the court for the adjournment of the case to a more suitable date for both parties. A date is yet to be set.
In the 5 February 2016 issue of the Government Gazette, a notice was published that Grenada Hotel Ltd, the company with which Government has a 99-year lease to build and operate a hotel on 30 acres of land where the Grenadian by Rex is located, is intended to be acquired by Government.
