The 62 existing districts, 22 are vacant judge without holder. The president of Amazon Court (TJAM), chief judge Graça Figueiredo, It draws attention to the number that worries his administration and said that a new tender to judge must be done urgently to address this gap.

- This survey concludes that the 78 power, We have met only 55 power, but due to various circumstances, as the granting of vacation, sick leave and shift to participation courses outside the state, the gap becomes larger - admits Graça Figueiredo.

Or document notes, still, that two 55 magistrates acting within the Amazon, with various situations, It is to highlight the case of Rene Gomes da Silva Junior judge (Silves region) in constant use of sick leave, but since November 2015 It is absent from the Comarca no reason to justify their lack, with established procedure in the internal affairs of TJAM.

Besides that, the magistrate of Novo Aripuana is accumulating the region of Apuí and the Humaita is accumulating with Canutama and the 1st Special Court of Humaita. It is also worth noting that several judges have expressed the intention not to cumulate functions.


The document also addresses the public tender for new judges. Or document states that “although the competition has been triggered, the deadlines for completion and forecast possession of competitors will take place in February 2017, if there are no any unforeseen during the course of the event”.

It should be noted, by appropriate, which are various manifestations of authorities and citizens requesting the president to appoint judges to the counties vacancies, and calling for the replacement of judges already appointed, according, inclusive, documents already received by the presidency and submitted to Magistrate.

The president of TJAM concerned about the situation of the regions of the Interior, steps up efforts to the claimants is not hampered by a lack of physical presence of the judge in the effective administration of justice and, mainly, in assisting the provincial community, as it was emphasized by Laurita Vaz, when he spoke to Amazon judges.
