Order of demolition of facilities around the hydroelectric lake in SP is suspended

01/17/2020

The Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF), Dias Toffoli, suspended the effectiveness of a decision of the Federal Regional Court of the 3rd Region (TRF-3) that ordered the demolition and removal of buildings located in a rural property on the banks of the reservoir of the Hydroelectric Power Plant (UHE) Água Vermelha, in the city of Cardoso (SP), to respect the 100 meter strip of Permanent Preservation Area (APP).

Chief Justice Toffoli considered to be present the requirement of the danger of delay, because in the decision of the TRF-3 there is a determination of demolition and removal of buildings located in an area eventually reached by the new Forest Code. The situation, therefore, justifies his action in the process, under the terms of article 13, item VIII, of the Internal Rules of the STF, which authorizes the president of the Court to decide urgent matters during periods of recess or vacation.

The RCL 38764 was distributed to Justice Edson Fachin.
