The shareholder said that the payment will be fulfilled, but that they will carry out criminal actions. “We know that she made mistakes and we tell her that as soon as the club’s situation can be leveled, if she has already amended the error, we will enter into the payments to suppliers that I estimate will enter the next month.”
