(Apr 18, 2013) On April 10, 2013, the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court decided during an administrative session that the criminal cases under analysis in the Court and future criminal cases will have the full name of the person being investigated, not only the person's initials, attached. The decision reestablishes a procedure that the Court had adopted after the promulgation of the Constitution in 1988 that had been altered in 2010 by the former president of the Court, Minister Cezar Peulso. The purpose of the new decision is to give full publicity and transparency to the Court's procedures.
