Brazil Senate committee OKs criminalisation law

A Brazilian Senate commission has recently approved draft legislation seeking the criminalisation of the sale of unregistered pesticides. Senator Humberto Costa’s draft legislation, PLS 438/2011, seeking provisions of three to six years’ imprisonment as well as fines, was approved in May by the upper house’s social affairs commission. The bill was presented to the commission in February ( Agrow No 632, p 13). It requires a further commission approval before passing to the lower house of Parliament. Bill rapporteur Senator Ana Amélia says she will seek amendment to limit imprisonment penalty terms to 2-4 years. The bill has passed to the Senate’s constitution and justice commission.
