Marco Aurélio Mello, Minister of the Supreme Court

Starts this Friday (24), in Brasília, the public hearing convened by Minister Marco Aurélio, the Brazilian Supreme Court (STF) to discuss the risks and benefits of the use of chrysotile asbestos in the Brazilian industry. Today and in the next 31 scientists, industry representatives, and government entities to support workers exposed to asbestos will discuss the pros and cons of using the material. The program provides that each of the 35 registered exhibitors will have 20 minutes to make his explanation. The hearing will be held in the hall of sessions of the First Class of the STF.

The hearing was convened by Minister Marco Aurélio because of Direct Action of Unconstitutionality (ADI) 3937, filed by the National Confederation of Workers in Industry (NCIT), in August 2007.

The lawsuit questions the Law 12.648/2007, the State of São Paulo, which prohibits the use in the state territory of products, materials or artifacts that contain any asbestos or asbestos or other minerals that have asbestos fibers in its composition.

The ADI 3937 request for injunctive relief was analyzed by the Plenum of the Supreme Court on June 4, 2008. By seven votes to three, the Court annulled injunction granted earlier and kept the enactment of Law 12.684/07 Paulo.

In order to broaden the discussion and support the movement, the Association of Bahia Exposed to Asbestos - ABEA - promotes walking in Simões Filho, Bahia, attended by all former Eternit Company employees, their families and all the people who directly or indirectly been exposed to asbestos. The concentration will be at 9 am, at the Secretary of Transportation - SETRAN.
