With the intention of promoting the registration regularization of public schools and police stations in the state of Bahia, the Court of Justice of Bahia (TJBA) sealed Technical Cooperation Agreements with the Association of Property Registrars of Bahia (ARIBA), the State Government , the Bahian Association of Cotton Producers (ABAPA) and the Association of Farmers and Irrigators of Bahia (AIBA).
Signed on Tuesday (30), at 4pm, the Agreement was signed by the then President of the TJBA, Judge, Nilson Soares Castelo Branco; by the then General Inspector, Judge José Edivaldo Rocha Rotondano; and by the then Inspector of the Interior Districts, Judge Jatahy Júnior.
“I am very honored, as we lead the Bahian Judiciary in new steps towards improving the constitutional mission, cooperating with institutions that also reflect the ethical and social values of our community. Land regularization was one of the main areas of action by the Internal Affairs Departments of this court in this biennium, we sought to reduce bureaucracy and simplify procedures to guarantee acts of regularization”, pointed out the Judge, Nilson Soares Castelo Branco.
On the occasion, representatives of ARIBA, ABAPA and AIBA and the Registrar of the Correntina Registry Office delivered folders with plans and descriptive memorials of three schools to the TJBA authorities. The documentation from the Alípio Castelo Branco School, in Xique-Xique/BA, was handed over to Judge Nilson Soares Castelo Branco; the Creche Angelina Rocha de Assis, in Salvador/BA, to Judge José Edivaldo Rocha Rotondano; and the full-time Quilombola School of the Iguape Basin, in Cachoeira/BA, to Judge Jatahy Júnior.
Thrilled to receive the plan and the descriptive memorial of a school named after his family member, Judge Nilson Soares Castelo Branco thanked the honor and spoke about the importance of women in all professional areas.
“Alípio Castelo Branco followed the school of Nísia da Silveira, a woman from Alagoas who came to study in Bahia. In 1927, 157 doctors graduated in Bahia, Nísia being the only woman. She introduced non-violent methods into Brazilian psychiatry to treat people with mental disorders. At the age of 26, she moved to Rio de Janeiro, where Jung, a collaborator of Freud, became aware of her work and she went to study with him for 2 or 3 years”, said Judge Nilson Soares Castelo Branco.
The signed Agreements follow the guidelines established by Joint Provision No. 21/2023, whose objective is to reduce bureaucracy and simplify procedures, in order to guarantee land regularization actions and the protection of public assets, without compromising legal security.
TJBA’s current cooperation with other institutions, regarding the regularization of all state schools and police stations in the state of Bahia, arose from an ARIBA initiative. The President of the association, Karoline Cabral, highlighted that “no funds and public policies will not be implemented in state schools and police stations, as these properties did not present registration irregularities. This is an unprecedented project in the country, bold and necessary. We are introducing the culture of registration within the scope of public heritage.”
In addition to those mentioned, the ceremony was attended by the Coordinator of Childhood and Youth, Judge Emílio Salomão Pinto Resedá; the Supervisor of the Judicial Cooperation Center, Lisbete Maria Teixeira Almeida Cézar Santos; and representatives of AIBA, ABAPA and ARIBA and bodies associated with the Government of the State of Bahia
