Action

Justice Gilmar Mendes is the rapporteur of the Declaratory Action of Constitutionality (ADC) 51, filed by the Federation of Associations of Information Technology Companies (Assespro Nacional). The object is the validity of the Judicial Assistance Agreement signed between the governments of Brazil and the United States. This agreement, enacted by Federal Decree 3.810/2001, allows access to data provided by international providers for criminal investigations involving persons, assets and values located outside Brazil. According to the association, however, several Brazilian courts request information from Brazilian companies affiliated with the providers.
