Swissport Ukraine fight goes on

GLOBAL ground handler Swissport is continuing to strive towards getting back its business in the Ukraine by legitimate means, despite the postponement of a court appeal hearing.
Swissport lost its business in the Ukraine to UIA (Ukrainian International Airlines) amidst allegations of violations of shareholder formalities.
Swissport never violated any of these formalities and always respected all rights of the minority shareholder, says a company statement.
“Swissport International is very much looking forward to the proceedings and stays optimistic, especially with the re-established Anti-Raider-Commission of the Ukraine under the leadership of Serhiy Arbuzov now in place, who stated that the ‘Cabinet of Ministers has designated raidership as a strategic problem that must be eliminated as soon as possible’, according to local journal the Kyiv Post.
The hearing will now take place in two weeks, the company points out. It was postponed at the request of Swissport due to UIA handing in a motion for additional documents – just before the hearing was due.
