MADRID, 31 Ene. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Minister of Transport and Sustainable Mobility, Óscar Puente, has congratulated himself on the Supreme Court's resolution on Abertis, "in which it is only recognized that the State must pay about 30 million."
"In recent days we have had a very important ruling in my Ministry, given that 4,000 million were claimed from us and the Supreme Court has issued a resolution that only recognizes that we must pay about 30 million," Puente highlighted in an interview. on Telecinco collected by Europa Press.
In this sense, the Minister of Transport has assured that he trusts in the rule of law in this country, and that the Government is "constantly subject to review of its decisions."
Specifically, the Supreme Court has rejected Abertis' claim to the State for 4,000 million euros in relation to the lane expansion works carried out on the AP-7 toll highway in 2006, estimating only the concession of 33 million of euros for the investments that were recognized by the Administration.
On the other hand, Abertis assured this Tuesday in a communication sent to the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV) that it does not share the interpretation of the 2006 agreement for the AP-7 toll highway made by the Supreme Court (TS) and is studying , "in defense of their legitimate interests, the possible means of challenge."
The company became aware of this ruling, derived from the dispute that its subsidiary Acesa has had with the Public Administration in relation to the calculation of the compensation balance resulting from the modification of the contract in 2006 of the AP-7 toll highway agreement.
Abertis calculates that the ruling, in relation to traffic compensation, represents an accounting loss net of provisions of around 250 million euros.
ACS, for its part, highlighted that the Supreme Court ruling on Abertis will have a negative impact of 14.5 million euros on its consolidated accounts and, therefore, "it is immaterial and will not affect its results."
