Italy Defends Consortium Rebuilding Tripoli Airport

By John Lee.

The Italian Embassy in Libya has rejected claims that the Italian consortium that was awarded the contract to rebuild Tripoli International Airport (TIA) passenger terminal is a fake company that disappeared after signing.

Africa Intelligence said that Consorzio Aeneas consisted of two small firms operating on a very small scale, and that their contract at the airport is a mystery.

The Embassy tweeted:

"No mystery. Consortium (≠company) is group of preexisting firms. AENEAS has all experience 2do great work @ #Tripoli airport. Stop disinformation"

According to Libya Herald, the consortium, which was formed specifically for the Tripoli project, consists of five companies: Bari-based Gruppo Mazzitelli , Axitea SpA of Milam, Rome construction and engineering consultants Two Seven, Escape and Lion Consulting.

      Sorry but who on earth are you in talking with such enigmatic way, this is a major public work and must be transparent to say the least !!!!!

      Anyway , when we click your name to see if it leads somewhere transparent such as LinkedIn, FaceBook, etc.. - we end up on an obscure website '''' which is without head or tail ?!

      Can you please enlighten us !!

      Thank You
