Brazil's Supreme Court will review injunction blocking privatizations only next year -source

BRASILIA, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Brazil's Supreme Court will only analyze the injunction that blocks privatization of state-owned companies without congressional approval next week, one source at the court told Reuters on Thursday.

Supreme Court justice Ricardo Lewandowski decided in July that all sales of state-controlled companies should be approved by Congress. Since then, state-controlled oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA has suspended the sale of its refineries, of the gas pipeline company Transportadora Associada de Gas and also of the Araucaria fertilizer factory.
