World Sexual Diversity Day and International LGBTI+ Pride Day are celebrated on June 25 and 28, respectively, reminding everyone of the need to continue to support the fight for recognition of basic human rights for the LGBTI+ community.  

International LGBTI+ Pride Day began to be celebrated after the Stonewall riots that took place on June 28, 1969. These were not the first protests or confrontations between the police and the LGBTI+ community, but they have become a symbol of growing awareness and confidence that paved the way for the fight for equality and non-discrimination.

The election of Brazil’s next prosecutor general is an extremely important decision for the country’s democratic system. He or she will be responsible for managing an institution that plays a central role in fighting impunity in Brazil.

As such, we believe that it is necessary to clarify the responsibilities of the Prosecutor General of the Republic (PGR) in the context of his or her work in the Brazilian criminal justice system, particularly on the 30th anniversary of the Constitution of 1988, which regulates it.

The main responsibility of the PGR is to promote criminal procedure, which means setting the political-criminal criteria that govern the work of the entire institution.
