  • REFORMAS DA JUSTIÇA PENAL NO BRASIL – A
           DEMOCRATIZAÇÃO INACABADA

    • Authors: Rodrigo Ghiringhelli de Azevedo
      Pages: 43 - 69

      This article discusses the penal reforms in Brazil in the context of an unfinished democratization process, in which violence and selectivity of state mechanisms of crime control are still the most striking feature of the penal system. From the diagnosis of increased incarceration, linked to the large number of pre-trial detainees and convicted of drug trafficking, and a presentation of the structure of the crime control field in Brazil, from the formal point of view, it discusses the importance of enactment of Law 12.403 / 2011, known as the Law of Precautionary Measures in Criminal procedure, the legal field resistance to the application of alternatives to provisional detention, and the recent implementation of custody hearings as control mechanism to police discretion and violence and limitation of abuse of the punitive power.

  • DIAGNÓSTICO DEL SISTEMA PENAL ACUSATORIO EN COLOMBIA

      El sistema penal colombiano se reformó entre el 2002 y el 2004 bajo el supuesto del cambio de un modelo de tendencia inquisitorial a un modelo acusatorio. Esta reforma se erigió bajo la idea de que los principios político-criminales del sistema acusatorio eran más acordes con el modelo de Estado social y democrático de derecho, así como la necesidad de una mayor eficiencia del proceso penal. En este texto se hará una exposición del proceso penal en Colombia, así como de problemas que se suscitan a la luz de los principios de un modelo acusatorio, que permitirán comprender la experiencia colombiana y aprender de ella en otros países. The Colombian criminal system was modified from 2002 to 2004 under the assumption of changing a model of inquisitorial tendency to an accusatory one. This reform was built under the idea of concordance between the political and criminal principles of the accusatory system with a social and democratic rule of law, as well with the need of a more efficient criminal process. This text will describe how the criminal procedure works in Colombia and also the issues of an accusatory system, which will help to understand the Colombian experience and learn from it in other countries.

           DERECHO, EL RESPETO DE LOS DERECHOS HUMANOS Y DEMOCRACIA. VENEZUELA COMO
           CASO DE ESTUDIO

      En la actualidad están apareciendo formas de ejercicio del poder sobre la base de un gran apoyo mayoritario electoral, que da origen a regímenes poco democráticos o “democracias ilimitadas”, que con el tiempo pueden llegar a ser autocracias, incluso, totalitarias. Una de las características de este tipo de regímenes políticos es que van eludiendo cada vez más las reglas y principios del Estado de derecho y para ello, someten paulatinamente a un importante control al poder judicial, y en especial, al juez constitucional, de manera que los límites al poder a través del Derecho se van haciendo cada vez más débiles o incluso desaparecen con el tiempo, y poco a poco, puede ocurrir que ese juez llegue a “legalizar” o “constitucionalizar” lo que hace el régimen imperante por encima de los principios del Estado de derecho y el derecho internacional de los derechos humanos. El régimen que se instauró en Venezuela hace 17 años como una verdadera democracia con un gran apoyo popular y con grandes promesas de lograr una sociedad más justa, conocido como “chavista” –por su líder, Hugo Chávez Frías–, es un importante ejemplo de cómo una democracia limitada, pasa a ser una ilimitada y finalmente, se transforma en un gobierno autocrático con rasgos totalitarios. El sometimiento del poder judicial ha sido clave para lograrlo y sobre esto trata este trabajo: mostrar cómo se logró ese control político, y cómo en forma paulatina, consecuencia de ello, fue decayendo el Estado de derecho, disminuyendo el control sobre la corrupción y por último, desapareciendo las libertades ciudadanas. Today, emerging forms of exercise of power based on a great electoral majority support arise to “unlimited democracies”, which over time can become autocracies. One of the characteristics of this regimes is that they will elude gradually the rule of law and therefore undergo an important control the judiciary, and in particular, the constitutional judge. The limits to power through Law, will become weaker or even disappear, and little by little, the judge will “legalize” or even “constitutionalize” what the government does, which will cause that the government will be over of the Rule of law, even the international law of human rights. The regime that was established in Venezuela 17 years ago as a true democracy with strong popular support and with great promises of a fairer society, known as “chavist” –by its leader, Hugo Chávez Frías–, is an important example of how a limited democracy, becomes an unlimited, and gradually, turn into an autocratic regime, even a government with totalitarian traits. Since the beginning, the subjugation of the judiciary was key to achieve this kind of government. This article shows how was accomplished.

      En el artículo se considera la situación de la justicia latinoamericana en un escenario de cambio constante. Se analiza desde un enfoque sistémico la modernización judicial en países de la región, y se identifican dos corrientes: una basada en la capacitación en gestión para mejorar los modelos existentes, otra centrada en la implementación de nuevos modelos basados en la separación de las actividades jurisdiccionales y administrativas. Se concluye que la primera corriente de modernización puede motivar a los agentes a participar en reformas más profundas, como las promovidas por la segunda corriente. Se reproducen entrevistas a informantes clave, información cualitativa y cuantitativa sobre reformas implementadas. The article deals with the situation of the Latin American judiciary in a scenario of constant change. From a systemic approach, it analyzes judicial modernization in countries of the region and identifies two streams: one based on management training to improve existing models, another one focused on the implementation of new models based on the separation of judicial and administrative activities. It concludes that the first modernization stream can motivate agents to participate in deeper reforms as those ones promoted by the second stream. It reproduces interviews to key informants, qualitative and quantitative data on implemented reforms.

      En este artículo se propone una reflexión sobre el proceso de reforma de la justicia en la Argentina desde el andamiaje conceptual elaborado por Giorgio Agamben en Il Regno e la Gloria (2007). A modo de introducción, en primer lugar, se despliega el desafío propuesto que consiste en visualizar el derecho penal y su liturgia desde la arquelogía de la gloria pensada por Agamben. En segundo lugar, se presentan los rasgos ceremoniales del poder estatal y del derecho en el proceso penal. En tercer lugar, se da cuenta de diversos elementos para pensar la gloria en la reforma procesal penal federal. En cuarto lugar, se reconstruye una acción de los expertos del derecho para promover la oralidad y el jurado a través de un “Simulacro de Juicio por Jurados”. Por último, las conclusiones se refieren a la productividad de la perspectiva agambeniana de la genealogía del poder para pensar la reforma de la justicia. Uno de los principales hallazgos sociológicos consiste en advertir que la élite vinculada a la justicia necesita la gloria para: construir su propio estatus; demarcar su territorio; constituir los fundamentos para sus distinciones, privilegios y labor; y mantenerse en una posición legítima para promover la reforma de la justicia. In this paper is proposed a reflection about the justice reform process in Argentina from the conceptual framework elaborated by Giorgio Agamben in Il Regno e la Gloria (2007). As a preface, in first place, is spreaded the proposed challenge that consists of visualizing the criminal law and its liturgy from the glory archaeology thought by Agamben. In second place, is presented the ceremonial features of the state power and law in the criminal proceeding. In third place, are refered the diverse elements needed for thinking about the glory referring the procedural criminal law reform. In fourth place, is reconstructed an action done by law experts in order to promote the orality and trial by jury thought a “Jury by Trial Moot Case”. Finally, the conclusions shows the productivity of the Agamben's perspective of the power genealogy to think about the justice reform. One of the principal sociological findings consists on the fact that the elite linked to the justice need the glory: to construct their own status; to design their own field; to constitute the foundations of their distinctions, privileges and labour; and to keep their legitimate position to promote the justice reform.
