Justice Carmen Lúcia receives the insignia of Officer of the Order of Honor Legion of France

In her speech, Justice Carmen Lúcia thanked the recognition and said that the principles of the French Revolution (freedom, equality and fraternity) have always motivated her. "At the current moment of the country, the commitment to the other and the defense of gained rights require even more attention," he said.

General Benoît Puga highlighted the trajectory of the Justice, who acted as a lawyer, at the Public Prosecutor's Office, arriving at the Attorney General of Minas Gerais. "It is an exceptional career. Her knowledge of French law and her work to combat corruption make Justice Cármen Lúcia admired by Brazilian and French magistrates", he said, noting that she is a "passionate" for justice and law, as well as being a militant in favor of democracy and the defense of women's rights.

The Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF), Justice Dias Toffoli, said that the award is an honor for Brazil and the Judiciary, which defends democracy, freedom and the free press. Justice Roberto Barroso stressed that the Justice Carmen Lúcia is an "exemplary person in her dedication to work, in her integrity and in her commitments to Brazil."

Justice Alexandre de Moraes pointed out that Justice Carmen Lúcia, during the two years that she was president of the STF (2016-2018), represented the excellence of the Brazilian Judiciary. The Attorney General of Republic, Raquel Dodge, stated that the Justice stands out for temperance, sobriety and deep legal knowledge, but also as a judge very sensitive to the main problems in Brazil.
