Failure to pay $24 million in compensation to Servipronto has led to an embargo of the brands McDonald's, Quarter Pounder, Big Mac and Ronald McDonald's.
An article in Elmundo.com.sv reports that "The executing judge is setting an embargo on the royalties paid by McDonalds Mesoamerica to McDonald's Corp. The judge has spoken to McDonald's CFO to determine how much this would amount to. Auction of the McDonald's brands would be the next step in the foreclosure process. It has been made known, preliminarily, that McDonald's Mesoamerica, the operator of the franchise, will not talk about the embargo. "
Carlos Castillo, lawyer of the Corporation, assured they will file an amparo action.
It will be filed before the Constitutional Court of the Supreme Court of Justice, in response to yesterday's ruling, which sentenced the corporation to pay $23.9 million to Salvadoran company Servipronto.
"We categorically state that a company has been sentenced to pay $23 million without any evidence.
