At first, the action, the CM had access, argues that “the obligation to compensate” the BES customers commercial paper buyers Rioforte is the New Bank. Because, argues Liminorke, BES has not fulfilled the duties of care to sell to counter the commercial paper of the company without the financial reality of Rioforte was properly presented. The Liminorke says she became “creditor [holder of a credit indemnity] BES” and that this credit, by virtue of regulatory intervention, went to the New Bank.
After, the company argues that even if this right was not recognized, the law that created the Resolution Fund has a paragraph which states that no shareholder or lender may get worse, after resolution than would be the case of liquidation. And be the difference will have to be the resolution fund to support it. “Lenders BES are therefore at worst, the right to receive [and already receive] the resolution fund compensation equal to the difference between the situation resulting from the resolution and that would result from its full settlement.”
The Liminorke argues that the main asset of the fund is the New Bank, the sale should be suspended until it is done the evaluation of the Bank of Portugal of the indemnity amount payable.
