Party questions acts of the Ministry of Agriculture that authorize more than 200 agrochemicals

The Partido Verde (PV) has filed an Action against the Violation of a Constitutional Fundamental Right (ADPF) 599 in the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) to question nine acts of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (Mapa) that autorize the registration of over 200 agrochemicals in Brazil in the first six months of 2019.

The party sustains that the questioned acts directly contradict several fundamental precepts of the Federal Constitution, among them the right to health and food and a balanced environment.

The party asks for an injunction to suspend the effects of Acts 1, 4, 7, 10, 17, 24, 29, 34 and 42, all of them Mapa's. In merit, it requires the declaration of unconstitutionality of the acts questioned. The ADPF's rapporteur is Justice Marco Aurélio.
