The vice president of the Amazonas State Court (TCE-AM), counselor Yara Lins dos Santos, dismissed, on the morning of Wednesday (15), injunction filed against the Municipal Superintendence of Urban Transportation (SMTU), for suspension of Public Competition No. 1/2016 - CEL / SMTU, which deals with the release plates for taxi drivers activity in Manaus.

the representation, filed by the taxi drivers Antonio Carlos Ribeiro and Francisco Mota Mendonça, They were alleged alleged irregularities in the bidding process that would be hurting the Principle of Equality, preventing the equal competition.

Also according to the representation, the edict had issues regarding rules, more specifically on the accounting of working time of taxi drivers as classification criteria.

Called to present justifications on charges of taxi drivers, representatives of SMTU clarified the counselor-rapporteur that the disqualification was due to non-submission by taxi drivers of Negative Debt Labor Certificate (CNDT), and that, at any time, interested parties submitted any application for challenge of this constant item in the announcement, within the prescribed period.

In its order, the counselor Yara Lins dos Santos denied the request of injunction, not considering plausible justifications submitted by the applicants for the suspension. According to counselor, the service time count, as established by the announcement, followed objective criteria. Still according to her, a union statement, in itself, does not prove the practice of driver activity.

The order of the counselor was sent for publication in the Official Gazette of the TEC and copies of the case were referred to the prosecutor of Auditors and the technical sector. The SMTU must be notified of the decision until this Thursday (16).
