Justice directs to the PGR proceedings for personal injury in the context of domestic violence

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Justice Celso de Mello of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) sent to the Federal Attorney General (PGR), for manifestation, the Petition (PET) 7115, which deals with criminal proceedings against Justice Admar Gonzaga Neto of the Superior Electoral Court for alleged practice of bodily injury and injury in the context of domestic and family violence against women. The Justice further determined the withdrawn of the confidentiality in the proceedings.

In the order, the dean of the STF pointed out that, in this case, the retraction carried out by the victim before the police authority does not affect the continuation of the investigation into the alleged offense of personal injury. Therefore, Justice Celso de Mello cited the decision taken by the STF in the Direct Action of Unconstitutionality (ADI) 4424, according to which the criminal action related to personal injury resulting from domestic violence against the woman is public unconditioned.
