The case

The MPAM recommendation was issued, on Wednesday, 8, through the Prosecutor of Justice of Urucurituba, aiming to curb the practice of nepotism in the hiring of servers by the municipal government. The public prosecutor Kleyson Nascimento Barroso considered the Binding Precedent No. 13 of the Supreme Court (STF), which considers violation of the Federal Constitution (FC) the hiring of relatives up to the third degree in positions of trust in the three branches of government, at the federal, state and municipal levels.

“Cross nepotism or reflex nepotism occurs when there is an exchange of relatives between public agents, that is, reciprocal designations, so that these relatives are hired directly, without a competitive examination. In the course of the investigation, we found that, in the staff of the municipality of Urucurituba, certain municipal civil servants have unquestionable family tie with the mayor, vice mayor, municipal secretaries and councilors”, said the prosecutor, the site of MPAM.

According to the Public Ministry, the 52 servers whose appointment falls into the practice of nepotism, four are relatives of the mayor, six are linked to the vice mayor, 25 are related to councilmen and 17 to municipal secretaries. Kleyson Barroso also determines the dismissal of any other servers whose appointment sets up nepotism.

“Failure to comply with the recommendation constitutes specific intent in the practice of administrative misconduct because of the violation of principles of public administration, enabling the filing of civil action corresponding”, concluded the MPAM.
