The sentence for ‘Alvarito’ and ‘Casquete’ includes the payment of 1,333 basic salariesnamely: $566,525.
To that they add $200,000 additional, for each one as, integral reparation to the relatives of the victim.
For the other sentenced, the fine is 666 basic salaries: $233,050, to which is added a comprehensive repair of $100,000 to the family.
But all the people identified as guilty belong to low-income groups and even have criminal records, so their work history is minimal. That is why those sentenced could declare themselves in insolvencywhich makes it impossible for the authorities to make the collection.
Fines are imposed by judges based on income of the victim (Efraín Ruales).
