The Attorney General of Rio de Janeiro, Luciano Mattos, told the blog that he will participate in the protest scheduled for Wednesday, 13, against the PEC that changes the composition and attributions of the National Council of the Public Ministry (CNMP). There are demonstrations planned in 18 capitals next week, when the Chamber of Deputies must vote on the text.
“PEC 05 represents a major setback to the constitutional profile of the Public Ministry, weakening the Institution’s autonomy and reaching functional independence, guarantees given precisely for the defense of society. We hope that it will be rejected in the Chamber of Deputies”, says the head of the MP from Rio de Janeiro.
In Rio de Janeiro, prosecutors and prosecutors are going to meet at the headquarters of the Association of the State Public Ministry (Amperj), which is in the city center, from 11 am.
The CNMP, or ‘Conselhão’, is responsible for overseeing the conduct of members of the Public Ministry. The PEC affects both the composition of the collegiate and the organ’s own function. This is because, in addition to creating seats to increase Congress’ influence over the institution, the text also proposes that the council gain the attribution of reviewing the private acts of prosecutors and attorneys.
See the main changes planned in the PEC:
– Increase in collegiate seats reserved for alternate appointments by the Chamber and the Senate, increasing the external influence on the Public Ministry;
– CNMP gains the power to review the private acts of members of the institution, and may even annul ordinances for the initiation of investigations;
– Freezing of statutes of limitations for infractions until the final decision on the conduct of the prosecutor or prosecutor;
– Corregedor Nacional will no longer need to be elected from among the members of the Public Ministry;
– CNMP should create a new Code of Ethics to guide the conduct of members of the institution;
– Superior Councils of the State Public Prosecutors, which are now elected by the class, are now composed of members appointed directly by the State Attorney General.
Internally, the proposal was read as a response from the political class to investigations against corruption. Members of the MP fear that the changes under discussion open the way for the manipulation of administrative proceedings against the work of prosecutors and prosecutors.
Over the past week, there have been several public demonstrations by the class against the text. A front of 38 deputy attorneys general of the Republic launched a manifesto in which they classify the PEC as a ‘coup’ in the institution’s autonomy. The Associative Front of the Magistracy and the Public Ministry (Frentas) said that, if approved, the proposal will serve as an ‘instrument to curtail freedom and functional independence’.
In an interview with state, the attorney general of São Paulo, Mário Luiz Sarrubbo, classified the proposal as ‘a death shot’ in the MP. He stated that he is also talking to all federal deputies elected by the state to try to articulate the rejection of the PEC.
The highest authority in the Public Ministry, the Attorney General of the Republic, Augusto Aras, said he asked the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), to postpone the analysis of the text while trying to buy time to re-discuss the changes.
