Prosecutor confirms suspension of Telebras-Viasat contract

Thursday 10 May 2018 | 13:23 CET | News
Brazil's Attorney General Raquel Dodge has rejected a request to suspend the injunction that prevents the execution of the contract between state-owned Telebras with US company Viasat, reports Valor Economico. The prosecutor said that the state's interests in the agreement for expanding internet access were not sufficient grounds for lifting the suspension. The opinion now goes to the president of the Federal Supreme Court, Carmen Lucia. The case relates to an agreement signed in February between Telebras and Viasat for the sharing of Ka-band capacity on the SGDC satellite.
