Why public television assumes the payment of 15 million pesos to Orlando Barone
This judgment of Justice has a “solidarity” legal character. In other words, the payment of the penalty must be the responsibility of both PPT, the production company created by Diego Gvirtzlike the public company, today in charge of Rosario Lufrano.

According to the judgment of the National Labor Appeals ChamberPPT had to pay “$3,947,119” in compensation to Baroneplus interest, for which the state corporation RTA was jointly and severally liable, up to the sum of $3,787,399.
