In a statement, the Buenos Aires Ombudsman’s Office indicated that prosecutor Cecilia Incardona felt that Edesur’s action “constitutes the crime of hindering electricity supply services, provided for and punished by article 194 of the Penal Code, notwithstanding that a more serious crime could be configured, for which reason it is appropriate to instruct a summary for its investigation ”.

Guido Lorenzino, who leads the agency, denounced that the entity received many claims against Edesur and “although the company knew of the arrival of high temperatures, it did not purchase energy to supply the energy flow, preventing users from using the service,” they highlighted. and underlined “the suspicious shareholding movements of Enel, the owner of Edesur.” The MPF moved forward with the complaint and ordered evidence measures in order to investigate the directors of Edesur and Enel.
