I know that the Congress decrees and I sanction the following law:
1st Article: Compensation shall be granted for damage to persons with physical disabilities caused by thalidomide, which consists of payment of a single value equal to $ 50,000.00 (fifty thousand
real), multiplied by the number of points indicated by the nature and the degree of dependence resulting from the physical deformity (§ 1 of art. 1 of Law no. 7070 of 20 December 1982).
2nd Article: The indemnity provided for in art. 1st will not apply to the tax income and earnings in any nature.
3rd Article: The 3rd art. of Law no. 7070, 1982, will become effective as follows:
"3rd Article: The retirement benefit provided for in this Law, except for right of option, can not be combined with income or indemnity that, in any way, will be paid by the Union to its persons, except for the compensation for moral damages awarded by specific law.
.................................................. ............................................" (NR)
4th Article: The costs of this Law shall run to the account of appropriations from the budget of the Union
5th Article: The punitive damages in this Law, safeguarded the right of option, can not be combined with any other the same nature granted by judicial decision.
