San José, July 20, 2021 (elmundo.cr) – The Icoder Administrative Court of Conflicts agrees with one of Limón FC’s petitions.
Caribbean They filed an ordinary appeal on Monday before the Costa Rican Sports and Recreation Institute (Icoder) and requested that the lawyer Sergio Rivera Jiménez refrain from evaluating the appeal because he was an advisor to the Unafut and is also part of the court.
This afternoon, Icoder reported that Limón FC’s request was accepted and that a replacement will soon be appointed to complete the quorum.
“Although we believed in the officials of the Unafut, led by Julián Solano, we were also clear that they were judge and party and it would be difficult for them to acknowledge all the irregularities they have committed. At last we reached a neutral, impartial entity with no interest whatsoever other than to dictate justice ”, affirmed Luis Fernando Zúñiga, Caribbean legal advisor.
According to the lawyer, the appeal is the same that was presented before the Unafut and the Costa Rican Football Federation, however an addition was made so that the Court has all the necessary documentation to give a verdict.
What was requested was the following:
“That the Court order the Board of Directors of the Unafut to send them the complete file of the case so that they know first-hand all the arguments that we have presented and that all administrative channels have been exhausted.”
“We request that a precautionary measure be imposed so that Unafut does not schedule the start of the 2021-2022 season until this resource is approved.”
“We ask that Mr. Sergio Rivera be recused to refrain from knowing this resource, since he took part in it as an advisor to Unafut.”
In this way, the people of Limon throw one more chip in their fight to avoid relegation, in a season that they consider had enough administrative irregularities to annul it.
“We tell our fans that we continue forward and persevere, this is a matter of justice and we have the conviction that reason assists us and we will continue in the highest category,” concluded the Limonenses.
