As part of the investigations to determine the decisive ruling, the CAS informed Byron Castillo of the summons to clarify certain documents they had in hand. However, the player decided not to attend and the reasons were disclosed by his own lawyer, Andrés Holguín.
“It is not a summons. The CAS notifies whom the appellant asks for. Chile asked Byron as it could ask the president of Ecuador. Our position is that if it was not a party before, it cannot be a party now,” Byron Castillo’s lawyer told El Deportivo de Chile.
