This afternoon at the facilities of the Courthouse of Guayaquil (Ecuador), Fernando Alarcon, legal representative of Bananera Noboa S.A, talked about Exportadora Bananera Noboa S.A. case.
“Alvaro Noboa said a few days ago that a political persecution against him and his companies has started, because of tax issue,” said Alarcon.
According to Alarcon the political persecution is not only at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by Carlos Marx Carrasco, current director of the institution, but it has also transfered to the judiciary.
The process of the alleged injury to the Treasury by $ 300 million has been filed in the second district courtroom Guayaquil, “Noboa Banana Exporting has not taken a penny from the state treasury,” said Alarcon.
The directors of the Noboa Banana Exporting request the return of the process to the Tax Litigation Division of the National Court to proceed in law, respecting the constitutional guarantee of due process.
