In the coming days, the Central Bank will receive a suggestion from the Chamber of Deputies to suspend the circulation of large denomination notes, such as R$100 and R$200 banknotes.
Protocoled by deputy Carlos Henrique Gaguim (União-TO), the idea is to try to reduce money laundering in the country, which according to him, would be facilitated by storing large amounts in small amounts of paper.
The parliamentarian asks the autarchy to analyze the cost-benefit of the decrease in the circulation of banknotes and the possible increase in expenses with the printing and distribution of lower value banknotes.
The Central Bank does not comment on the matter.
