The owner of Havan stores, Luciano Hang, is the subject of a lawsuit that charges more than BRL 824,000 in rent. The action takes place in the TJ-SC (Court of Justice of Santa Catarina), in the Commercial Court of the District of Brusque, 102 km from Florianópolis. The city is home to the administrative center of the chain of stores, which is also a part of the action.
Hang gained national recognition by becoming a staunch supporter of President Jair Bolsonaro (PL). Last Saturday (25), he accompanied the president during the politician’s visit to Balneário Camboriú, where he participated in an evangelical event.
The lawsuit against Hang and Havan is filed by the company FMG S/A. O UOL contacted Havan, but did not receive a response until the article was published. When the manifestation is sent, the text will be updated.
The report also contacted Heine Withoeft — one of the lawyers at FMG S/A. In a message, he stated that he would have “nothing to say on this matter”.
The process was filed with the TJ last Monday (27) and the amount involved is R$ 824,120.38.
FMG does not ask for eviction from the store, as the lawsuit’s classification in the court system shows.
In May, Havan was ordered to pay R$30,000 to a woman who worked at the retailer in 2018 and felt coerced into voting according to the preferences of the company’s owner, Luciano Hang.
According to the decision of the Regional Labor Court of the 2nd Region, Hang’s pressures fall within the “use of the managerial power of the owner” of Havan to “induce its employees to vote for its candidate”, Bolsonaro. To UOLthe company said it will file “the appeal due to the TST (Superior Labor Court)”.
