THA Chief backs “Jean De La Valette” ferry lease


    THA Chief Secretary Kelvin Charles is backing the decision to lease the “Jean De La Valette” ferry to service the sea-bridge.

    Mr Charles has dismissed concerns regarding the deal, referring to it as “mischief and misinformation” aimed at hindering progress.

    The THA Chief Secretary is also standing by statements from Government and NIDCO, that the procurement process was transparent, and that the ferry itself is in good condition and suited to the needs of the sea-bridge.

    The deal for the vessel from Virtu Ferries is yet to be finalized by NIDCO.
