The decision suspending the rule of the Enem notice, no last day 26, was the Federal Regional Court of the 1st Region and met a request from the School Without Party Association, It is alleging that the rule was contrary to freedom of expression. INEP was only notified of the court decision on Wednesday (1), and waiting for the judgment of the entire content.

Cármem Lúcia justified the decision on the grounds that “compliance with the Constitution of the Republic, imposes, in a same base, full respect for human rights, upset by racism, by prejudice, intolerance, among other practices unacceptable in a democracy and firmly adverse to the existing legal system. But not combat social intolerance with intolerance greater state. Sensitized to human rights with greater solidarity even with human error and not gag. The stake is the echo of guaranteed human rights, not the silence of speechless rights”.

The issue reached the Supreme resources of the Attorney General's Office (AGU) and the Attorney General's Office (PGR), in these cases, They wanted to keep the zero note to newsrooms Enem with offensive content to human rights.

To reject the applications of AGU and PGR, Cármen Lúcia kept, in practice, TRF-1 decision of the Fifth Panel, motivated by lawsuit filed by the Association without Party School. Also last year, the entity argued that the Enem correction criterion offends the right to free expression of thought, freedom of conscience and religion and the principles of pluralism of ideas, impartiality and political neutrality, ideological and religious state. “Nobody can be forced to say what they do not think to be able to enter a university”, the association argues.
