Dominican impresario counters Spanish mogul’s claims
Santo Domingo.- Dominican impresario George Nader on Thursday responded to Spanish mogul Juan José Hidalgo, accusing him of a media campaign to present himself as victim and pressure the courts.
Nader submitted alleged evidence which belie the Globalia group president’s assertion that he bought land at Uvero Alto (east) to build a resort, but which was subsequently declared unsuitable for hotels.
He denied that the lot acquired by Hidalgo isn’t suitable for hotel construction and affirms they’re located between two hotels in the Uvero Alto area and “numerous times have received the Tourism Ministry’s design parameters and use to develop projects on them."
Nader said the project on the land which Hidalgo himself processed was already at the final evaluation phase for the Environment Ministry’s permit.
"This clearly shows that what Hidalgo is saying is not true and that his intention is to try to position himself as a victim when in fact it’s Hidalgo who wants to trample our rights to take over the land without complying with the payment agreed in the contract," the impresario said in a statement.
