Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court and Sérgio Moro talk about modernization of criminal execution in Brazil

The head of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) and the National Council of Justice (CNJ), Chief Justice Dias Toffoli, received a courtesy visit on Tuesday morning from former Federal Judge Sérgio Moro, a member of the transition team of the President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro, and who will occupy the position of Minister of Justice and Public Security as of January 1, 2019.

The Chief Justice of the STF informed the future Minister of Justice about measures that are already being implemented in the area of ​​technology to modernize the criminal execution in Brazil. These are joint initiatives between the CNJ, the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) and the Ministry of Public Security to allow, for example, biometric registration and issuance of civil documents for detainees.

Measures also include the creation of a network to monitor the use of electronic anklets and the implementation of the Electronic Unified Execution System (SEEU) throughout Brazil to streamline and simplify procedural management in the execution of penalties.

Another issue addressed in the brief audience of Sergio Moro with Chief Justice Dias Toffoli was their concern with the 68,000 homicides recorded in Brazil last year, which correspond to 11% of the total number of murders recorded in the world.
