 Amado Medina Abandon Clients
 
 Dear. Sir(s),
Reporting to the legal conflict between you and Tecnicil, regarding the Vila Verde Resort located on Sal Island – Cape Verde, and which is awaiting resolution of an Ad Hoc Arbitral Court, we hereby provide the following information:
As you are all aware, we are facing an unsustainable delay (and innumerous constraints) in the Arbitral Court's own installation and, consequently, in the start of proceedings. This is due to lack of understanding between the parties to choose and elect the 3rd arbitrator (and president) of the arbitral court.
The only legal option, at this moment, to overcome this situation, is to request the intervention of the judicial court of law, to nominate the missing arbitrator.
Please notice that this possibility will result in another legal process, which will obviously entail more costs. We believe, however, that it shall not surpass a global amount around 128.750$00 CVE = €1168 Euros (court costs around 100.000$00 and legal fees of 25.000$00 + 15% IVA). 
With the appointment of the arbitrator, we shall be able to finally initiate proceedings, provided that there are no more dilatory maneuvers from Tecnicil.
So, given the above, we would like to know whether you agree to advance with this procedure.
Aware of your best attention and in anticipation of your prompt reply, we present our best compliments.

Raquel Spencer Medina and Teresa Teixeira B. Amado have taken clients money and given them no service (a familiar theme in Cape Verde). They are ignorant of the following Link, and it is also their incompetence that lead to the failure of the first arbitration against Tecnicil and Alfredo Carvalho's bunch or bandits. 
 
 
In another Legal case On Murdeira Beach A client whom bought two units and has taken legal action for the return of money has had his case thrown out of court. The site has never been built, but the Judge Anilson V Carvalho Silva has said that the contract is still valid but would not give judgement as the client had to prove why the site had not been built, and not the company that should have built it. THAT'S CAPE VERDE JUSTICE. I.E. THERE IS NONE

Dr. Amilcar Spencer Lopes and your colleagues have not had the curtesy to reply to or letters sent to all the government departments listed below. Obviously you care nothing for us or your countries future inward investment

 

 

An MEP has tabled a question about the Contouno Agreement and the reply is as Follows:-
 
 

E-004358/2015

Answer given by Mr Mimica

on behalf of the Commission

(28.5.2015)  

 

 

The Commission is aware of this case involving the Cape Verdean property developer TECNICIL and Banco Espirito Santo. The EU Delegation in Cape Verde received complaints from British and Irish citizens regarding their investment in "Vila Verde" with which the EU has neither direct nor indirect link nor involvement. This issue has been raised with the authorities within the regular political dialogue.

 

Chapter 7 of Title II of the Cotonou Agreement, including Articles 75 and 77, needs to be interpreted in the context of Article 74 which explicitly states that strategies and policies to develop private sector investment, as described in the Agreement, shall be supported through financial and technical assistance. It sets out a specific area for financial cooperation between ACP States and the EU and contains elements of the strategies and policies that shall be developed and supported. 

 

Article 75 in particular remains rather broad as it clearly states that measures shall be taken within each country’s respective competencies. Article 77 on investment guarantees describes a possible form of financial assistance that could be provided. Whether or not such assistance is to be provided has to be negotiated on a case by case basis with the ACP country.

 

None of these articles establish a direct and enforceable obligation on the EU or the ACP States to take specific measures regarding a foreign investment.

 

The Cotonou Agreement does not establish a legal basis or mechanism for addressing non-compliance with these provisions.

 

It means each individual must write to The CV Government for protection and the addresses are as foloows:-

 Therefore for the price of a stamp you may want to write to the CV Government now.

As we may all be aware Tecnicil have retained a number of units and that the new Bank Banco Internacional de Cabo Verde is believed to hold the rest of the units i.e. in layman's terms they have repossessed them even though they were aware of the attempts to negotiate a settlement with tecnicil which as we all know fell on deaf ears. It may weel be worth writing to BICV and point this out on an individual basis as Pehaps some banking laws have possible been infringed here
