Propiedad Intelectual (Indecopi) who went to all the beaches of Lima this
weekend, Javier Rizo Patron president of the Comision de Acceso al Mercado de
Indecopi announced yesterday that the functionaries will be charged round 17
thousand soles, the law states that the beaches are for public use, they are
prohibited to charge for a public services, what they can charge are services
such as private parking, toilet facilities and so on.
