Huge Fine For Alcampo

March 4, 2008

alcampo.jpgThe Alcampo hypermarket chain could be facing a €600,000 fine if the ruling of the High court of Justice of the Canaries (TSJC) is confirmed. The ruling declared a local authority licence obtained by the French multinational to extend their Los Majuelos site in Santa Cruz , null and void.  

The court ruled the company made application and obtained planning permission from the local council in La Laguna but failed to make the application public and opened the extension without an opening licence.

There is, as yet, no word on whether the company plan to appeal the court’s ruling.
