Emerita Provides Update on Developments in Aznalcollar Court Proceedings, Spain
TORONTO, Oct. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Emerita Resources Corp.
(TSX – V: EMO; OTC: EMOTF) (the “Company” or “Emerita”) announces that the Administrative Court of Andalucia (the “Administrative Court”) (please see the Company’s press release dated November 25, 2015 for further details) has notified the Company that it will be making a ruling in the administrative case initiated by Emerita in 2015. The application to the Administrative Court was filed by Emerita in 2015 because Emerita considered the awarding of the Aznalcollar project pursuant to the public tender process to be unfair, arbitrary and inconsistent with the well-defined rules and laws of the tender process and Spanish law.
The Company perceives the Administrative Court’s notice as a very positive development as Emerita’s external Spanish legal counsel (“Counsel”) has advised the Company that the Administrative Court has the authority to make a determination to award the Aznalcollar project to Emerita.
This administrative process is separate from the ongoing criminal proceedings (see the Company’s press release dated October 6, 2021) regarding the alleged crimes committed in the awarding of the Aznalcollar tender and this gives Emerita another path forward to obtaining the rights to the Aznalcollar project.
The Company will provide details of the Administrative Court’s ruling once it has been issued.
