The Limón war against Unafut continues. The legal battle is just beginning. The first two rounds were lost by those of La Tromba, as their appeal for annulment of the championship was rejected by the Competition Committee and Unafut, respectively.
Both the Competition Committee and the Board of Directors of Unafut declared the Appeal of Revocation with appeal in subsidy and incident of Absolute Nullity of the 2020-2021 season concomitantly against the resolution that decrees the demotion of Limón FC, presented by Los Verdolagas.
Luis Zúñiga Portilla, a lawyer hired by the Limón FC leadership to defend this case, was clear and forceful in rejecting the version of his colleague Sergio Rivera, considering his response as “an escape from the main issue.”
“Actually, I believe that since the beginning of the season, not Limón, but Sporting FC made the different authorities of Unafut see, both the Board of Directors and the assembly members, that there was indeed a problem and made it clear throughout all season, “said Luis Zúñiga Portilla, a lawyer from Limón.
“They tried to make them see that they were falling into two errors by programming a season differently from the first to the second tournament,” insisted Zúñiga Portilla.
The antecedents that Limón FC defends
In this allegation, the company hired to defend Los Caribeños covers itself with the complaints that the Sporting team had presented, which in the entire previous contest denounced its disagreement due to a lost vote, which apparently accused the change of regulations that would have affected it. facing the descent.
“In fact, on December 15 of the previous year, a vote was held in which, by a vote divided 7 to 5, inclusive, Limón lost that vote,” said Zúñiga Portilla.
“I think that Mr. Sergio Rivera runs away from this issue and does not take it into account, because he was also there (in said vote), where it was said that they indeed, that is, Limón FC together with the losing group tried to amend the error throughout that first season ”, accused the lawyer who represents Limón FC
“Even Sporting FC in two assemblies in which I attended at least one myself, made the Board of Directors (of Unafut) and the assembly members see that they were making a mistake and that this had to be corrected even though the second tournament it was ongoing ”, he added.
“However, there was no agreement and there was that convincing power that would have been wanted throughout the first tournament (Clausura) and also with the call of the second (Apertura),” insisted the defender from Limón.
“Even this legal situation was presented with other clubs, because it was not only Limón and Sporting, there were many clubs involved that were in favor of the complaint that Sporting was making at the time and that Limón later had to assume,” he concluded.
Limón will raise the case to the Court of Appeals in Fedef Fútbol, if they do not get a positive response, they will raise it before the Icoder and if not they will take it before Fifa.
