Costa slams 'malicious' UIA leaders over supply law criticisms

"They are using our project to approve reforms to an already existing law in a malicious way against the government, to install fear and anxiety," the politician fired in a press conference held today. (TÉLAM)
Internal Trade secretary Augusto Costa has warned that the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA) is behaving inappropriately and even maliciously in its criticisms of a new Supply law proposed by the government, accusing the business chamber of trying to install fear in the public.

"They are using our project to approve reforms to an already existing law in a malicious way against the government, to install fear and anxiety," the politician fired in a press conference held today.

According to Costa, business leaders "were in complete agreement with the projects to reform the Consumer Defence laws and in price observations, but they did not want to discuss the Supply law."

"I asked them to talk over, article by article, the law and they said that the rules, from 1974, are all wrong and they refused to discuss it," he fired.

Costa asserted that the government had been pleased with the outcome of meetings held by the UIA in recent days, highlighting the chamber's support for laws that defend consumer rights amongst other measures proposed.

"However, they criticised and they did not want to discuss Supply because it seemed to them that the law was all wrong. In other words they did not criticise the reform, rather the 1974 law, by which one can see that they are against those regulations being in place," he said.

"When this law was applied recently against the laboratories, I did not see anyone running out to say that it was inconstitutional or immoral or anything of that nature."
