Crack down on GivovaWednesday, November 23, 2011, 16:44
The MFA officials have informed the council members that the association has commenced an internal scrutiny exercise to decide if it is to honour its current contract with technical supplier Givova. This site has carried several stories featuring the problems that the MFA was facing with this Italian company. The MFA CEO Bjorn Vassallo said that the contract that was signed by the former administration included several clauses whereby heavy fines are involved should the Malta A team decide to play in another kit.
Vassallo revealed that the MFA has asked also help from an Italian lawyer to assist them in the eventuality that the MFA opts out of this contract.
The MFA might encounter additional problems since the contract stipulates that any disputes have to be addressed in a Napoli tribunal which may eventually lead to bureaucracy and additional expenses.
