Fronda.Pl Unveils Involvement of Several European Countries in Marriott Criminal Investigation 


The Marriott Criminal Investigation

 The Marriott Warsaw is a substantial, sophisticated, luxury hotel in a prime location in the center of Warsaw, Poland.

The Lim Company owned the site of the Marriott Warsaw and formed a partnership agreement with Marriott International for Marriott to operate the hotel.

During the COVID lockdown period, no guests were staying at the Marriott Warsaw, and the hotel’s income was effectively zero.

A request from Lim to Marriott to close the Marriott Warsaw during COVID was refused by Marriott.

The financial effects on the Lim Company were increasingly problematic. To continue operating Marriott Warsaw without income during the various lockdowns would have been an increasingly concerning financial matter.

This situation led to a legal conflict between the parties and proceedings being issued by The Lim Company. The various charges included matters of a financial, operational, trust, and transparency nature.

The initial legal proceedings became a criminal investigation of Marriott and also came under the spotlight of the Polish government and authorities.

The legal representatives of both parties are still addressing the legal issues, and the European Court will preside over the legal proceedings that have now been issued.

Legal representatives for both parties will ensure they make any submissions comply with European legal precedent and in accordance with international law as established by the European Court.

Marriott’s Operation in Europe

Marriott International operates over 700 properties in Europe, ensuring a significant presence for Marriott within the European hospitality sector.

Marriott’s 4th Quarter 2023 financial reporting identified a healthy performance and solid financial contribution from Marriott Hotels European properties. The economic reports identified an increase of 26% in net profits compared to 2022 and referred to the particular strength of Marriott’s European properties, underpinning the overall financial performance.

Increased occupancy rates and improved average room rates in European hotels further identified the contribution that Marriott’s European operations have made to the broader company.

Marriot hotels in Europe are certainly a vital division of Marriott International, and their positive contribution is expected to continue going forward.

Because the dispute between Mariott and Lim escalated to become a criminal investigation against Marriott, there are a number of concerns that appear to affect both Marriott Hotel and the wider hospitality industry across Europe.

Ongoing contractual agreements between hospitality companies will now become closely scrutinized, and uncertainty between stakeholders, contractors, and investors throughout Europe will remain a significant issue.

Which European Countries are Involved in the Marriott Criminal Investigation 

Marriott’s extensive presence in Europe would suggest that a number of European countries could be involved in the Marriott Criminal Investigation.

Poland is the European country central to the investigations and is obviously deeply involved in the matter.

Senior, leading European countries such as Germany and France will also become involved as matters proceed. These most senior European partners take a particular interest in the legal and financial affairs within the European community.

It should be noted that Marriott Hotels have a significant presence in both Germany and France. This would clearly suggest that each country will have some involvement in the legal proceedings and any associated criminal investigations.

Neighboring countries to Poland, such as Germany, Czechoslovakia, and Lithuania, may well become involved in the criminal investigations, as partners who have joined with Mariott Hotels in Poland will be likely to operate with more frequency across neighboring borders than further afield in Europe.

The legal process would suggest that these neighboring European countries could be involved, to some extent, in the criminal investigations into Mariott Hotels.

An excellent example of this would be The Lim Company itself. They are a consortium that includes Lot Polish Airlines and SGS GMBH. However, Lot Airlines is clearly a Polish company and is wholly owned by the Polish Government. The other party in the consortium, SGS GMBH, is one of the world’s leading testing, inspection, and certification companies.

SGS GMBH is, in fact, an old established German company. It was established in 1878 and has successfully grown to include a network of 2,600 offices around the world and nearly 100,000 employees.

The conflict between Marriott and Lim will, therefore, certainly involve the German government and the German business community.

Marriott International has a number of substantial shareholders who are based in Europe.

Publicly quoted companies such as Barclays PLC, a leading banking company in the United Kingdom, and The Swiss National Bank retain substantial investment holdings in Marriott International. The criminal investigations will, by definition, involve these companies and the European countries they represent.

The international court is also based in Luxembourg. This will, therefore, involve that particular country in the legal matters, as regards their governance and process of the legal issues will be set before them.
