"It does not mean that the rate will increase. Extra was asked about the ruling on the merits, but it was a decision monocratic, which can be appealed to the House and we will appeal to the Special Court ", said attorney. "There is another precedent decision to the tariff increase in the Amazon Court (TJ-AM) which runs until the end judgment of the appeal, scheduled for the day 20 of June", he explained.
