Chief Justice Lewandowski enacts diplomatic agreements as Acting President of the Republic


Tuesday, September 23, 2014

The President of the Supreme Federal Court (STF), Chief Justice Ricardo Lewandowski, as Acting President  of the Republic, signed, this Tuesday (23), at the Planalto Palace, seven bilateral treaties that allow for the paid job of  dependents of diplomatic personnel in Belgium, Slovenia, Philippines, Mexico, Nicaragua, Romania and Switzerland.  He also signed the retirement of magistrates of Superior Courts and of Courts of Second Instance.

The agreements, signed by the Brazilian government between 2007 and 2010, were already approved by the National Congress. They allow the dependents (spouses or partners, single children under 21 years of age, or 25 in case they are students and single children with physical or mental disabilities) of the diplomatic and consular personnel of the states involved to obtain work visas. Brazil has already signed these types of agreements with more than 60 countries.

Another act enacted by the Chief Justice of the Presidency of the Republic was the signing of the retirement of Justices Sidnei Beneti and Ari Pargendler, of the Superior Court of Justice, and of magistrates Ana Maria Contrucci Brito Silva, Luiz Carlos Gomes Godoi and Sérgio Winnik, of the Court of Labor Justice of the 2nd Region (SP).
