Cesar Perez Barriga, deputy director of El Universo, stated in an interview to CNN they will resist to the arbitrary decisions not contemplated in the Act of communication, he told journalist Fernando del Rincon.
Rincón recalled that EL UNIVERSO is fined by the Superintendency of Information and Communication (SUPERCOM) with the 10% of the turnover of the last three months, representing an average of $ 350,000. This, according to the state agency, is because this newspaper refused to publish a replica designed as a news, including the title.
Perez said they have complied with all the provisions and publication of the replicas. And he explained with the covers in hand, how El Universo initially handled the IESS news, and presented the design of the replica sent by the SUPERCOM and the way they diffused the order.
