1st Chamber of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) determines a new Jury to be held before the acquittal of the defendant against evidence of the proceedings


By the majority of votes, the First Chamber of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) decided that the Jury's Court may make a new deliberation in criminal proceedings judged against the evidences. The decision was made at this Tuesday's session (10) in the examination of the Ordinary Appeal in Habeas Corpus (RHC) 170559, which deals with the possibility of the Public Prosecutor's Office appealing a ruling in which the Jury acquits the defendant, even after admitting the existence of materiality and evidence of authorship or participation in the crime.
