Special presentation by the President of the Federal Court of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

On March 6, 2019, the “Casa del Soldado” was visited by Federal Judge Reis Friede, President of the Federal Court of Justice of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The purpose of his visit was to give a presentation on “The fight against corruption in Brazil and its consequences for the American continent”.

The presentation of this respected magistrate aroused great interest from the audience because, in addition to deepening the understanding on the fight against corruption in Brazil, brought to reflection implications and consequences of this type of scourge across the continent.

Comments and discussions on the subject highlighted the need for a joint interagency effort (at the national and international levels), as well as intense cooperation among governments, also involving the private sector.

This visit is part of the IADB leadership´s efforts to present to the Council of Delegates, Permanent Observers and other special guests topics of regional interest as an effective way of promoting confidence- and security-building measures among the countries of the Hemisphere and emphasize the civil-military interdependence in issues that affect the defense and security sectors.
