The federal judge of Belém (PA) Antonio Carlos Campelo gave three decisions in favor of loggers and ordered the Federal Police to release material seized in the largest operation in the history of Brazil.
The injunctions are part of the case that generated friction between Environment Minister Ricardo Salles and PF delegate Alexandre Saraiva, who was head of the agency in Amazonas.
The decisions say that the apprehensions made by the police were illegal.
Campelo was the judge who, in January, had set a daily fine of R $ 200,000 for each federal police officer involved in an action arising from the first, as shown by the Panel.
The TRF-1 (Regional Court of the 1 Region) had suspended the decision because it understood that the competence of the case is in Amazonas, not in Pará.
