Two years ago, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IA Court HR) ordered the Ecuadorian State to pay about $ 14.5 million in favor of 27 former judges of the former Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ for its Spanish acronym) and 8 members of the extinct Constitutional Court (TC), who were dismissed by the Congress in 2004.
Of that amount, $ 12.3 million correspond to the first, says the report submitted by the Attorney General’s Office to the Assembly.
The value according to the judgment, was broken down as follows: $ 10.5 million for “material damage” (in proportional shares, according to the case); $ 1’620.000 ($ 60,000 for each one) for “restitution” to be paid in the first year from the notification of the judgment; $ 135,000 ($ 5,000 for each one) for “pecuniary damage”; and $ 5,000 for legal costs.
The agreement among the parties was to make the payment in three installments. The last will be in March next year.
