Bahrain’s Judicial Committee for the Settlement of Stalled Real Estate Projects has announced that the Amwaj Gateway development will be sold at public auction on 31 October, 2017.

Proceeds from the stalled project’s auction, which will be organised and managed by Cluttons, will be transferred to the kingdom’s Ministry of Justice and Islamic Affairs.

In accordance with guidelines stipulated by Bahrain’s Civil Commercial Procedures Law, the judicial committee stated that the decision to auction Amwaj Gateway was only taken after all other options had been explored.
