Justice Lewandowski met with the president of the Russian Supreme Court

Monday, June 1st, 2015

On the first day of the visit to Russia, the Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF), Ricardo Lewandowski, met on Monday (6/2) with the president of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation, Vyacheslav Lebedev, on the Court, in Moscow. The presidents debated themes of mutual interest of the Judicial Branches of the two countries, especially the judicial cooperation, extraditions and experience exchange regarding computerization of judicial proceedings.

The presidents agreed on the need to deepen and accelerate the mechanisms of judicial cooperation between Brazil and Russia, especially because of the strengthening on the economic and political relations between the two countries bilaterally and within the framework of the BRICS. The President Lebedev took note of the Brazilian interests and clarified that the Russian Supreme Court, by constitutional jurisdiction determination, can propose to Parliament procedural bills, so this exchange of ideas can result in legislative initiatives that would favor the Brazil-Russia relationship.

Minister Lewandowski also participated in a working meeting with the Director of the Judicial Department of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation, Alexander Gousev, with whom he discussed the possibilities of cooperation within the computerization of court proceedings. Russia, the largest country in the world in territorial extension, has regions distributed among eleven different time zones, some are difficult to access, such as Siberia and the Islands in the far north of the country, and has developed satellite communication systems that can be useful for application in isolated regions of Brazil, to the example of the cities in the interior of the Amazon rainforest.

Tomorrow, the Minister will participate in the Plenary Session of the Council of Judges of the Russian Federation, which is equivalent to the CNJ in Brazil.
