President Jair Bolsonaro sanctioned this Wednesday (15) the text of a provisional measure (MP) that allows the use of resources from the Fund for the Equipment and Operationalization of End-Activities of the Federal Police (Funapol) to finance a health plan. and payment of an indemnity for time of availability to federal police officers, the so-called on-call. The text had been approved by the National Congress at the end of May.
The measure also allows Funapol’s resources to be used for the cost of transportation, accommodation and food for servers in missions and operations of an official nature and for amounts of an indemnity nature, in addition to the payment of health expenses.
“We are correcting a historic error in the PF. Today, we make it possible for the police to receive notice. We also create the possibility for the PF to provide a health plan for its servers. This is extremely important and fair”, said the minister. of Justice and Public Security, Anderson Torres, during a speech at the Planalto Palace, after the text was sanctioned.
The approved proposal authorizes the use of up to 50% of Funapol’s resources, also including expenses with compensation. Initially, the MP sent by the government provided for the use of up to 30% for the payment of health expenses and travel costs for civil servants, but the percentage was increased during the legislative process.
When editing the measure, the federal government argued that the proposal does not entail the creation or increase of public expenditures, nor the granting of any salary increase for civil servants. The text only expands the possibilities of using the resources that already exist in the background. The Ministry of Justice and Public Security will establish the limits and conditions, according to budget availability.
