Chairman of the Board, Roberto Guevara Elizalde, said yesterday that the 48-hour period “has two readings, although he said last week that it was about to expire midnight yesterday (00:05).
Former workers were o picket line yesterday outside the Justice Palace to demand a sit to enforce the ordinance enacted by the Third Chamber of Guayas payment which was more than 90 million dollars. The complainants claim that there still are several irregularities.
He explained that if the company neither pays nor communicates its willingness to do so, the process will be referred to the lower court and this in turn must notify Brewery. Only then, he said, another 48 hours will start to run and if the new time is not respected penalty interest will be added by then.
“The period of 48 hours can be understood in two senses: One, they have to report here that they will pay to the judge. It means they show their intention to pay, and the other is that today is the end of the 48 hours”, said the judge and explained that this second option would imply that CN must make a deposit into the Court 12th Civil Guayas account, as a provided by the sentence.
