Reporter extends deadline for government to present Covid-19 containment plan among indigenous peoples
In the extension request to Justice Luis Roberto Barroso, the AGU argued that the cyber attacks have damaged the functioning of the Ministry of Health.

11/20/2020

Justice Luís Roberto Barroso, of the Supreme Court of Brazil (STF), extended until 11/23 the deadline for the Union to present information on the reelaboration of the general plan of combating and monitoring of Covid-19 for indigenous peoples. The decision, accepting a request from the General Advocacy of the Union (AGU), took place within the plea of the Challenge of Non-compliance with Fundamental Principle (ADPF) 709, brought before the STF by the Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (Apib) and six opposing parties of the government.

On October 21st, Barroso denied the homologation of the second version of the plan presented by the federal government, because he considered it "generic and vague," which made it impossible monitoring its implementation, and determined the elaboration of a new one, under the coordination of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, with the participation of the Ministry of Health, the National Indigenous Foundation (FUNAI) and the Special Indigenous Health Secretary (SESAI), to be presented within 20 days.

In the request for additional time, the AGU reported an "unpredictable situation" generated by the cyber attacks that harmed the functioning of the Ministry of Health, especially the activities of the Special Indigenous Health Secretary (Sesai), thus compromising the collection of essential data for the preparation of the new version of the plan.
