Millennium Hotels MEA has taken legal action against Makkah Construction, the owner of Millennium Hotel and Towers in Saudi Arabia, for “unlawfully, and in contrary to the terms of the operating and management agreement", interfering with its exclusive rights in the management and operation of the facility.
Meanwhile, on 13 June, Makkah Construction said in a missive to Saudi bourse, Tadawul, that it was terminating its contract with Millennium.
