The Attorney General of the Union (AGU) appealed today (12) the Federal Regional Court (TRF2), headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, to annul decisions of the Federal Court that prevented the possession of Congresswoman Cristiane Brazil on Labor minister post.

Possession was barred for the first time on Monday (8), first instance, from a Labor Independent Lawyers Movement popular action. The organization argues that the appointment of Brazil Cristiane "offends the administrative morality". According to the lawyers' movement, Mrs "practiced personally serious violations of labor laws, caught and proven in, at least, two lawsuits ".

Then, AGU and the defense of Mrs appealed to the second instance, which upheld the decision. On the night of Wednesday (10), the substitute judge of the Federal Regional Court of the 2nd Region (TRF2) Vladimir Vitovsky rejected the appeal.

Not appeal, AGU claims that the judge who granted one of injunctions has no legal competence to decide the issue. The law maintains that the question should have been examined by the federal court of Teresopolis (RJ), and not of Niterói (RJ). To AGU, the law that regulated the class actions provides that the theme should be tried in the place where it was proposed the first action involving the issue.
