The commission will continue with debates and deliberations until next Friday (April 5), to evaluate another 500 articles, which have amendments and highlights. The books of the Code that deal with Digital Law and Civil Liability were also unanimously approved.

“What was agreed with Pacheco is that we will give a technical opinion. Afterwards, the matter will be changed as the Legislature deems best”said Luis Felipe Salomão, who is also minister of the STJ (Supreme Court of Justice), when Power360.

O Power360 found that this Tuesday (April 2) the commission must vote on the Law of Obligations, which regulates the fulfillment of agreements, the Law of Things, which deals with the ownership of assets, and Succession Law. The topics are more delicate and, therefore, should not reach consensus.

Even so, the expectation is that all changes will be discussed, adjusted and approved by next Thursday (April 4), according to information from this digital newspaper.
