It should be noted that Director João Accioly followed the grounds for the vote of Director Flávia Perlingeiro, however, although he also followed the conclusions on the non-occurrence of prescription, he presented a vote, since he partially diverged from the understanding on this point, especially in the with respect to the figure of continued infringement.
