The JusDh (Justice and Human Rights Articulation) group, of which Conectas is part, has condemned the conduct of Justice Lewandowski. “The JusDh expresses its concern over these interim decisions, in the middle of recess, that use the acting presidency of a given justice to try and overturn important decisions, such as the suspension of a judge or the establishment of regulations for the appointment of auxiliary judges,” said the group in a public statement.
“There is a clear attempt to weaken the oversight role of the CNJ in favor of corporate interests and this undermines the transparency and the efficiency of the Judiciary.”

The Brazilian Constitution determines that presidents of the Supreme Court automatically serve as president of the CNJ. Lewandowski will take over the presidency on August 13.
