This afternoon, businessman Alvaro Noboa assured that the President Rafael Correa is committed to sabotage their candidature for upcoming presidential elections of 2013.
Noboa said that the government is using its control over the courts so that Industria Bananera can not litigate and its force to pay since 2005, a debt of $49’206.895,28 millions, adding the interests and a fine. Such sums are not seen in the charges against banana exporters such as Dole, ReyBanpac, Chiquita among others.
Noboa pointed out that this false accusations on behalf of Correa are to bankrupt Bananera Noboa and when the want to file the case without even allow them to litigate is nothing more than a personalized political persecution with the purpose of scaring him and quits his candidacy.
“This is the proof of the great lie, and the false accusation on behalf of the economist Rafael Correa to see if by bankrupting Bananera Noboa I get scared and don’t participate in the electoral campaign.”
Finally the leader of PRIAN talked about the forgery of signatures of CNE as a coward tactic on behalf the executive to disqualify his candidature.
“It’s another trick to try that I don’t participate in the elections, I have ‘affiliated myself to Alianza Pais’ its from Ripley (…) If I don’t detect it on time, in the moment I am going to register my candidature, they could tell me you cannot register in PRIAN because you are already affiliated to Alianza Pais.” (AV)
