Gov't requests ruling's annulment via 'per saltum'
Justice Minister Julio Alak assured that the ruling of the Civil and Commercial Court over the Media Law "confirmed what we have been claiming," and stated that the government "will call for the annulment of the ruling" via the "per saltum" resource.
"Tomorrow we'll present the annulment request before the Court via the per saltum," because "this ruling is absolutely arbitrary, with severe contradictions aimed to the extension of the absurd injunction," the minister assured during an interview in 678 TV programme.
The minister assured that "there are only a few days left for the background sentence, that could be in a week, or maybe two or three, but the application of the law is inexorable."
Alak admitted that "an injunction could be applied with a decree, but not over a law of the National Congress, requested by an economic group and that has been approved three years ago."
The 'per saltum' law regulates an extraordinary appeal to let the Supreme Court decide on “serious institutional cases” which require a “swift, definite solution” without going through lower courts first.
