Jari Cellulose Group land titles in Brazil declared illegal


A Public Civil Action from the Prosecutor of Agrarian Justice in the state of Pará, Brazil, against the Jari Cellulose Group requested that part of their land titles be annulled. The Civil Action came out of an investigation of successive fraudulent and illegal practices since 1937, related to the issuance of land titles and to fraud in public records for an area of about 126,000 hectares in the municipality of Almeirim. The Jari Cellulose Group is involved in logging businesses, and it has REDD+ carbon credit projects for sale.
