The federal government, through the Union Attorney General (AGU), has asked the Federal Supreme Court (STF) to suspend the order to pay R $ 16.1 billion in court orders next year . Judicial debts refer to transfers from Fundef, a financing fund that predated Fundeb (Fund for the Maintenance and Development of Basic Education), to the states of Bahia, Pernambuco, Ceará and Amazonas. This amount represents 18% of the nearly 90 billion reais of judicial orders planned for 2022. The AGU also asked the President of the Court, Luiz Fux, to open a conciliation on the issue. The information is from O Globo. Fundef debts are among the reasons for the rise in the value of court-ordered debt from BRL 55.5 billion in 2021 to BRL 89 billion next year, leading the federal government to release a Proposed Amendment to the Constitution (PEC) for the staggered payment of these judicial debts up to 10 years. Economy Minister Paulo Guedes said that if the measure is not approved, the government will not have the resources to pay the salaries of civil servants.
