The headquarters of the Court of Justice of Minas Gerais (TJMG) will be transferred, on a special and temporary basis, to the city of Ouro Preto, this Friday (2/2). The change is part of the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the installation of the Second Instance of the Judiciary in the State.
The transfer from Belo Horizonte to the historic city of Minas Gerais will feature an extensive program, prepared by the Special Commission for the Sesquicentenary of the TJMG. At 9 am, a Thanksgiving Mass will be held at the Basilica of Nossa Senhora do Pilar. Afterwards, a welcome coffee is planned in the building of the old forum of the District of Ouro Preto.
At 11 am, still in the old forum building, there will be a Magna Civic and Historical session of the Special Body, by delegation of the Full Court, when the Act of symbolic transfer of the TJMG headquarters to Ouro Preto will be signed.
In the afternoon, two trial sessions are scheduled, in the 1st Civil Chamber and the 1st Criminal Chamber, also held in the old forum building.
