DEVELOPERS, Firoka, will be suing Ally Pally, its general manager confirmed today.
In 2007 a temporary trading licence was granted to Firoka but its millionaire owner, Firoz Kassam, withdrew from negotiations in August 2008, after the palace's trading company resumed its licence.
Campaigners were always critical of the contract with Firoka and a report in September 2008 criticised the terms of the contract claiming it was too "advantageous" towards Firoka.
David Loudfoot, general manager of the Alexandra Palace and Park Charitable Trust, confirmed today that a formal letter of claim had been received from solicitors acting for Firoka.

"Since dealings with Firoka ceased we have worked closely with the council to re-establish our trading company and start looking forward, with improved facilities, new contracts and an exciting programme of events.
