In response to the emergency measures issued by the government to face Corona, our insolvency authority (Indecopi) has suspended attention to the public as of, Monday, March 16, 2020, nationwide, through March 30, 2020.
This means that, while the social isolation measures are in force, neither the head-quarters of Indecopi that operate in Lima nor the other regional offices that oper-ate in the different departments of the country will be open to public attention.
Moreover, deadlines applicable to claims, complaints, obligations, and records have been suspended.
This means that, if an ongoing period to comply with the performance of an act regarding an insolvency proceeding expires today, it should be extended to the next business day, that is, when Indecopi restarts its attention to the public.
In addition, the lack of attention to the public implies that appointments for read-ing files and the call for Creditors' Meetings for the coming days have been sus-pended.
Finally, we understand that the members of Indecopi have been organizing them-selves to use various technological means to try to avoid, as far as possible, delays in the insolvency proceedings.
