WASHINGTON-the Government backed down and now only adopt new rule for economic exploitation of indigenous lands, scheduled to enter into force on day 24, after the Federal Supreme Court (STF) terminate the trial about the occupation of the Raposa Serra do Sol in Roraima. The Ministry of Attorney General of the Union (AGU), Luis Inacio Adams said yesterday the globe, after the parade of 7 September, that will wait for the conclusion of the trial of resources on the topic in the Supreme Court to put the rules in force.
— I must extend the entry into force of the Ordinance until the trial of the embargoes, which should happen until mid-November, as informed me the Minister Ayres Britto (Rapporteur of the case which will leave the Presidency of the Court in November) — Adams said.

AGU admits dialogue

The AGU issued Ordinance in July to extend the decision of the Supreme Court about the reservation of Roraima to all indigenous lands of the country. The Court opened the possibility of economic exploitation of areas.
To the National Indian Foundation, the Ordinance restricts the constitutional recognition of the rights of indigenous peoples. Adams admits dialogue with communities during this period of deferment of entry into force of the rules, but discards changes to the content of the Ordinance, except for significant changes in the decision of the Supreme Court.
