Westminster says contractual arrangements for Ghana work close to being sealed


Security services group Westminster said contractual arrangements for recent work it had won at a port in Ghana were still being finalised.

The company was part of a venture hired to provide security services at a new container port at Terminal Three at Tema in the African nation.

'The various contractual arrangements between all the different parties, MPS, Scanport, Westminster and support contractors, are agreed in principle and Westminster is pleased with the outcome,' Westminster said.

'Contracts are due to be signed once certain financial arrangements between MPS and the port authorities have been put in place, which are in the process of being finalised.'

The company said that screening and search operations havd been in place since Terminal Three opened on 28 June and payments on account to Scanport and Westminster for work undertaken are being made, whilst awaiting final contracts execution.

'The company will update the market further on this important managed services contract once the contracts are signed,' it added.
