Brazilian Supreme Court (STF) justice Luiz Fux is expected to hold this morning a hearing on the legality of the schedule for minimum fares for road freight transport.
Representatives of the Brazilian government, businessmen, truck drivers and the Attorney General’s Office are expected to take part.
Some entities question the constitutionality of the presidential decrees that tabulated the minimum prices of freights. The lawsuit, with a request for precautionary measures, was filed by the Brazilian Freight Transport Association, Confederation of Agriculture and Livestock of Brazil (CNA), and the National Confederation of Industry (CNI).
Fux intends to hear all parties involved, which include government bodies and entities representing the truck drivers, before ruling on the case.
