Principles of “relocation” and acquisition by continuous use questioned

The Cultural Heritage Protection Law, approved yesterday at the Legislative Assembly (AL), introduced a clause stating that immovable cultural heritage, already classified or in the process of being classified, cannot be acquired by Prescription. Lawmaker Leonel Alves argued that such a clause “violates the Civil Code.”

In legal matters, the Prescription method is a way of acquiring a non- possessory interest in land through the long and continuous use of the site in question. During yesterday’s plenary meeting of the Legislative Assembly (AL), lawmakers approved the law while a few clauses still managed to create controversy.
