The daily cites as an example Monday May 8, 2017. “No great movements, people have learned to live with the ghost town. At the Courthouse at Up Station, it was also the usual monotony. The lawyers in black dress that often flood the place were not very visible, ” the paper wrote. According to the newspaper just a few lawyers who have in charge the management of some cases have been seen in the offices.

The daily says they do not feel solidarity with their decisions.
