Legal intervention over at TCQ

Alexander Aizenstatd, the interventor appointed by Guatemala’s Extinción de Dominio Court to oversee Terminal de Contenedores Quetzal (TCQ), has confirmed that, during his time there, no further complaints or legal action had been brought and that his job is now ended.

He noted that, since TCQ opened for business on February 19, 22 vessels had called at the terminal, generating business amounting to 16,000 containers and income of $1.5m.

Mr Aizenstatd had been appointed after allegations of corruption by Otto Pérez Molina and Roxana Baldetti, respectively Guatemala’s former president and vice-president, who are now in prison while a case against them is investigated.

TCQ was part of the Spanish company, Grup Maritim TCB, subsequently purchased by APM Terminals.  

APMT has confirmed to Port Strategy that the intervention has been lifted, which means the company can now operate the TCQ facility.
