Compensation from the State Treasury
Entrepreneurs are announcing claims for compensation from the State Treasury for decisions resulting in the closure of their businesses.
So far, two lawsuits have been filed with the General Prosecutor’s Office, which will represent the State Treasury. One was made by the owner of the shopping mall and the other by the owner of the gym chain.
Group lawsuits were also filed by entrepreneurs from the tourism industry and discos. Companies from the following industries are already announcing that they will follow suit: catering, fitness and ski lifts.
In September 2020, the prime minister asked the Constitutional Tribunal to declare the provision compliant with the Constitution to incur liability for damages by the State Treasury for losses incurred as a result of issuing an unconstitutional normative act. Until the case is considered, the courts may delay the settlement of claims filed by entrepreneurs.
