The plenary approved on Wednesday (19), the bill that the Senate 6124/05 defines as a crime subject to imprisonment from one to four years and a fine, the carriers of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and AIDS patients. Due to changes made by the House, the text returns to a new analysis of the Senate.

Among the situations that could lead to the framework are as a crime to deny employment or work; segregate the person at school or work, deny or delay health care or disclose their status as HIV positive or sick with AIDS aim to offend their dignity.

Other situations that can be classified as a crime are to refuse, delay, cancel or segregate student enrollment in kindergarten or institution for any course or degree, public or private. One also can not be prevented from remaining as a student.

Dismissal <b> controversial </ b>

Before the vote, opposition parties and MPs from the governing coalition parties have not agreed to review the substitute of the Committee on Constitution and Justice and Citizenship (CCJ), approved in 2009.

The leaders decided to vote on the original text of the Senate with the approval of a PSC highlight of the text which excluded the possibility of framing a crime to removal or dismissal from office or employment by reason of the condition of carrying the virus.

Proponents argued that the emphasis is very difficult to prove that the employer would be laying off an employee due to other factors - related to job performance, for example - and not have AIDS.

Currently, the Law 7.716/89 already punishes discrimination based on race, color, ethnicity, religion or national origin.
