    More than 90 thousand Edesur users are still without power in AMBA

    March 19, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Some 90,092 Edesur users in the city of Buenos Aires and the Buenos Aires metropolitan area (AMBA) are still without electricity this Friday afternoon, while protests continue against the distribution companies and the national and Buenos Aires governments filed complaints against one of them, Edesur.

      Meanwhile, in Caballito, a protest is being held at the corner of Acoyte and Rivadavia Avenues to demand concrete measures to guarantee the electricity supply in the City of Buenos Aires.

      These are Edesur users affected by the power cuts who are demanding "the complete renewal of the power lines" and an "automatic and general compensation" to those affected by the lack of service, according to the Observatorio del Derecho a la Ciudad, the group organizing the mobilization.

      The national government, through the ENRE, filed this week a criminal complaint against the authorities of the company Edesur to be investigated for fraudulent misappropriation of agreed rights, abandonment of person and hindrance of public services.

      On Thursday of this week, the Government of the City of Buenos Aires filed a criminal complaint against the same company for the alleged commission of the crime of abandonment of person with fraudulent intent after assessing that the power outages in the City of Buenos Aires "endanger the life or health of the inhabitants of the district".

      The Ombudsman's Office of the City of Buenos Aires, meanwhile, filed a class action before the Buenos Aires Court of Justice against Edesur "for the lack of dignified treatment and lack of information" towards the neighbors affected by the power cuts for weeks, and requested that fines of between $73,000 and $308,000 approximately be applied.
