The shelters of Inés Gómez Mont

In September 2021, Gómez Mont obtained an amparo on the denial of the reparation paymentbut it did not proceed because it was concluded that said proposal was not made before the Treasury Attorney’s Office, but rather with the Tax Administration Service, an institution that does not have the legal powers for this case.
