Making Justice – Judiciary Response for COVID-19 (Recommendation 62)
Conselho Nacional de Justiça - CNJ, Brazil
ABOUT: Recommendation 62, approved by CNJ in March 2020, establishes guidelines to state courts and judges to take preventive measures against the spread of the COVID-19, especially among confined populations. The recommendation fostered measures aimed at reducing overpopulation in prison units, promoting preventive health-care, regulating prison visits, and participation in contingency plans. The ruling was developed in the context of the Fazendo Justiça (Making Justice) Programme, a joint initiative of Brazil;s National Council of Justice (CNJ) and UNDP Brazil. The initiative has been in progress since January 2019, aiming at strengthening judiciary policies related to prison and juvenile criminal systems in Brazil.
