Deputy Daniel Farcas (PPD) and lawyer Claudio Sepúlveda met yesterday with the Chief Prosecutor of Puente Alto, Cristián Galdames, to address the collusion of tissue paper (comfort) and demand the National Economic Prosecutor's Office and the Tribunal of the Free Competition that do not delay the investigation and provide all the background of the case, a situation that the legislature with the lawmaker Gabriel Silber (DC) brought to justice, and whose allegations will be held on Tuesday March 1 in the Court of Appeals, San Miguel. After the appointment, Deputy Farcas said that "we analyzed with Attorney Cristián Galdames our complaint that we filed with Silber alleging articles 285 and 286 of the Penal Code, which is an aggravating when there is an absolutely artificial adulteration of prices. Obviously we need the Anti-Collusion Law to be passed, but as long as that happens, something absolutely unacceptable is happening here, and we have denounced it: we have the FNE, the TLDC, the SCA and CMPC executives together That the FNE and the TLDC provide the background that the prosecutor is now requiring to pursue the investigation he is obviously developing. " In the same sense, Farcas added that "here there is an issue that has to do with morality, with ethics and justice, that there is a symbolic action for not only consumers, but also small entrepreneurs who could not compete In the gondola of the supermarkets, those stores and those that have to do it in unequal ways with these companies, obviously have a compensation at least from the point of view of justice. We need tomorrow in the court of San Miguel to be judged in a coherent way and therefore, we call for effective justice and law. And in that sense, give all the background to the South Prosecutor's Office, so you can continue to investigate. " Regarding the allegations that will be held in the San Miguel Court, Farcas said that "this is going to take a couple of weeks, but the important thing is that we already have the picture of the Constitutional Court, which is regrettable. The FNE and the TDLC, the executives of SCA and the executives of CMPC, all together alleging against the criminal persecutor, who is obviously the prosecutor who in this case is carrying out the investigation. We consider this situation unacceptable and we are obviously calling on all public officials, as the Constitution states, to provide all the information they have available.
For its part, Attorney General Galdames said that "we expect the San Miguel Court of Appeal to be favorable to us, and ultimately order the FNE and the TDLC to provide the full background so that we can continue with the investigation. We have the certainty that it is within the scope of our competence to make us all antecedents and that is why we are taking action before the respective court, which is the Court of Appeals of San Miguel.
