According to information confirmed by three sources well placed in the CEP, the six lawyers who sat on the BCEN require 1.5 million gourdes each and the three judges in the Court of Appeals 1.2 million gourdes before signing their deliberation. Result: the decisions of the BCEN will not be known until the outcome of this situation. The CEP plans to meet Tuesday on the matter.
