'Civil and Commercial court going against SC,' Alak attacks
After the national government submitted this morning an extraordinary recourse before the Federal Civil and Commercial Court against the extension of the Clarín Group’s injunction to comply with the Media Law, granted by the Civil and Commercial Court N° 1, Justice Minister Julio Alak showed his disagreement.
“We are seeking for the annulment of the injunction extension that has already become eternal and only looks to deny the Media Law”, Alak told reporters.
“It’s been three years since the approval of the Media Law and the civil and commercial court in charge of the injunction extended to Clarín Group has shown nothing but contradictions. They have even gone against the Supreme Court that was very clear on May 22 when it indicated that the injunction was to last until December 7.”
“Furthermore, on November 27 the Supreme Court said that a final verdict should be given on the topic as an injunction extension was not an option.”
