Chief Justice of Supreme Court and minister of Justice discuss joint projects on prison population, indigenous population and adoption

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

The Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) and president of the National Council of Justice,  Carmen Lúcia, and Minister of Justice Alexandre de Moraes met on Wednesday morning to discuss the sharing of information on three issues that will be part of partner projects between the Executive and Judiciary branches in 2017 - adoption, prison population and indigenous communities. According to the Minister of Justice, the meeting held in the Office of the Presidency of the Supreme Court "was to put together projects jointly between the powers, mainly in relation to a greater integration of data between the National Council of Justice and the Ministry of Justice."

Adoption data, for example, could be shared by the CNJ to draft a bill amending the National Adoption Law (Law 12.010 / 2009), a topic that the Ministry of Justice has already made available for public consultation. This exchange of information should also be used in the search for better conditions for the prison population of the country. The intention, according to Alexandre de Moraes, is to accelerate the formation of a national cadastre, based on data from the National Council of Justice and Justice Ministry.

The Justice Minister also said that in January, issues related to the demarcation and regularization of indigenous lands will also begin to be debated with the Judiciary, "so that we can establish, based on the decisions of the Supreme Court, a procedure in National Indian Foundation- FUNAI, that gives more security Legal status for both indigenous communities and farmers ", as it deals in the Justice Ministry proposal for a change in the demarcation rules of these lands.
