  • The appeal for criminal annulment and the typology of its grounds (errors)

    • Abstract: Resumen Este artículo trata sobre las consideraciones técnicas necesarias para la comprensión de un recurso de naturaleza casacional, como es el recurso de nulidad. En particular analiza, primero, los argumentos que discuten la propia función de aplicación del derecho objetivo que corresponde al juzgador y, por consiguiente, la posibilidad de tutelar la observancia del derecho mediante un recurso de tales características. En segundo término, se ocupa del análisis de la idea relativa a la presunta imposibilidad de que el control sobre la aplicación del derecho al caso concreto sea realizado de forma segregada, distinguiendo sus elementos de derecho de aquellos que son integrantes del juicio de hecho. Una vez despejados los puntos anteriores, se hace una exposición sobre la tipología de motivos del recurso de nulidad, basada en los tipos de errores y vicios sustantivos y procesales que pueden denunciarse por medio de sus diversos motivos. Con esto se consigue aclarar el asunto relativo al tipo de denuncia y censura que se puede articular por cada motivo del recurso y el tipo de examen que se pueda exigir a la Corte que resuelve el recurso.Abstract This article addresses the technical considerations to understand of an appeal of a cassational nature, such as the appeal of annulment. In particular, it analyzes, first, the arguments that discuss the function itself of the application of objective law that corresponds to the judge, and therefore the possibility of protecting the observance of the law by means of an appeal of cassational nature. Secondly, it takes care of the analysis of the idea relative to the presumed impossibility that the control over the application of the law to the specific case is carried out in a segregated way, distinguishing its law elements from the one that are part of the factual judgement. Next, an exposition is made on the typology of grounds of the appeal for annulment, based on the types of substantive and procedural errors that can be denounced by means of their various grounds is made. This exposition clarifies the questions regarding the type of censorship that can be articulated for each ground for the appeal and the type of examination that may be required of the Court that decides the appeal.
       
  • Leniency program and collaboration of the alleged offender in the Chilean
           securities market

    • Abstract: Resumen El comportamiento colaborativo del infractor suele ser recompensado por la ley mediante la reducción de las sanciones a imponer. La legislación chilena del mercado de valores ofrece un programa de clemencia para el presunto infractor, el cual establece diferentes beneficios para que aquellos que proporcionen información que posibilita el esclarecimiento de conductas ilícitas. Este artículo examina el contexto legal de esos incentivos ante la Comisión para el Mercado Financiero. También realiza un examen crítico de los elementos y consecuencias de la actual regulación, cuestionando algunos aspectos del sistema de clemencia chileno en el marco regulatorio del mercado de valores y proponiendo algunas alternativas para mejorar el control legal es esta área.Abstract An offender's collaborative behavior tends to be rewarded by the law, by means of reducing the sanctions to be imposed. The Chilean securities market legislation offers a leniency program for the alleged offender, providing different benefits for those who provide information aimed at uncovering unlawful conducts. This article examines the legal context of such disclosure incentives before the Commission for Financial Market. At the same time, this article provides a critical examination of the elements and consequences of the current regulation, questioning some features of the Chilean leniency system in the regulatory framework of the securities market. Finally, this article proposes some alternatives to improve legal control in this area.
       
  • A model of justified judicial decision for the Chilean criminal process

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este texto tiene por objeto proponer un modelo de decisión judicial justificada para el proceso penal chileno a partir de la noción de error como defecto de justificación. Para ello, junto con adoptar un concepto de decisión judicial y de justificación racional de la decisión judicial, propongo emplear aquellas categorías teóricas y cruzarlas con las reglas procesales sobre contenido, fundamentación e impugnación de la sentencia penal del proceso penal chileno. Con ello, será posible diferenciar los siguientes tipos de decisiones judiciales defectuosas: a) aquella que presenta defectos en la justificación, b) aquella que infringe determinadas reglas procesales, c) aquella que vulnera derechos y garantías fundamentales, y d) aquella dictada cometiendo falta o un abuso grave o una conducta delictiva. Finalmente, se mostrará que este modelo de decisión judicial justificada no puede evitar que exista condena de inocentes.Abstract: This article proposes a model of justified judicial decision for the Chilean criminal procedure, starting from the notion of error as a defect of justification. For that purpose, together with adopting a concept of judicial decision and of rational justification of judicial decisions, I propose to use those conceptual categories and match cross them with the procedural rules on the content, justification, and appeal of criminal rulings of the Chilean criminal procedure. Thus, it is possible to distinguish the following types of defective judicial decisions: a) one that presents justification defects; b) one that infringes procedural rules, c) one that violates fundamental rights, and d) one issued with serious abuse or misconduct or committing a criminal offence. Finally, I will show that this model of justified judicial decision cannot avoid the existence of wrongful convictions.
       
  • Breach of Sentence in the Adolescent Criminal Liability Act

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este artículo analiza una de las principales instituciones jurídicas de la fase de ejecución de las sanciones penales para adolescentes, como es el quebrantamiento de condena. En primer término, dará cuenta de la estrecha relación entre la existencia de sanciones comunitarias o no privativas de libertad y un régimen de reacción ante casos de incumplimiento, donde destaca la cooperación del condenado en su efectivo cumplimiento. En segundo término, presentará una sistematización de los principios que orientan el sistema de quebrantamientos definido por la Ley de responsabilidad penal del adolescente en Chile, y un estudio de las condiciones de su aplicación, poniendo especial énfasis en el desarrollo del criterio de “gravedad” del incumplimiento, ofreciendo diversos parámetros para su valoración concreta. Finalmente, este trabajo tratará sobre las consecuencias jurídicas asociadas a la declaración judicial del quebrantamiento y sobre algunos aspectos particularmente destacados en materia de derechos procesales.Abstract: This article analyses one of the main legal institutions in the execution phase of the criminal sentence for adolescent offenders, namely, the breach of sentence. First, this article will explain the close relationship between the existence of community or non-custodial sanctions and a reaction system for cases of non-compliance, where the cooperation of the sentenced offender plays a key role for its effective enforcement. Second, I will present a systematization of the principles that guide the system of breach of the sentence defined by the Adolescent Criminal Liability Act, and a study of its application conditions, emphasizing the development of the criterion of "seriousness" of non-compliance, offering various parameters for its concrete valoration. Finally, this article will address with the legal consequences of the judicial declaration of the breach of sentence and some particularly important aspects in terms of procedural rights.
       
  • Inquisitorial criminal procedure and access to justice in Chile: a
           socio-historical study of judicial employees and their tasks in the
           context of the practice of delegation of functions (1974-2012)

    • Abstract: Resumen: A través de este estudio etnográfico y archivístico, queremos reflexionar sobre la manera en que se aborda el acceso a la justicia y la penalidad cotidiana en Chile en la década del 1990 y el 2000. Estos temas han sido a menudo opacados por el análisis de los procesos de justicia transicional. En los juzgados del crimen, la investigación y la persecución -atribuciones del juez- y hasta la elaboración y la lectura del fallo eran muchas veces ejercidos de facto por empleados judiciales, los llamados actuarios, quienes buscaban conseguir confesiones a cualquier precio. El artículo describe en su primera parte el funcionamiento administrativo y la configuración social de los juzgados del crimen entre el final de los años 1970 y principios de los años 2000, en base a 63 entrevistas en profundidad llevadas a cabo entre 2012 y 2017, además de 62 horas de observación, el 2012, en uno de los últimos juzgados del crimen en actividad. Luego, en base a la revisión de tres expedientes judiciales del 1991, 1994 y 2004 -una fuente de información a la que no se suele tener acceso- se reflexiona acerca de la manera en que se elaboraban las pruebas en el sistema de justicia inquisitivo.Abstract: Based on ethnographic data and archives, we explore the access to justice and ordinary penalty in Chile while both issues are often outshined by the study of transitional justice process. In the Chilean inquisitorial system, formal prerogatives of judges - investigation, prosecution and sometimes even the writing and enunciation of the verdict - were de facto exercised by poorly qualified court clerks who used to seek confession at any price. This article describes first lower criminal courts (juzgado del crimen) as bureaucracies and social configuration between the end of the 1970s and the beginning of the 2000s, on the basis of 63 in-depth interviews conducted between 2012 and 2017, and 62 hours of observation in one of the last juzgados del crimen. Next, reviewing three judicial files from 1991, 1994 and 2004 - a source of information that is difficult to be granted access to - this study handles the issue of the elaboration of judicial proof in the inquisitorial Chilean judicial system.
       
  • The intersectoral work of legal clinics and their contribution to access
           to justice in reparation processes for victims of crimes against humanity.
           The case of the Human Rights Clinic of the Universidad de Valparaíso in
           Chile

    • Abstract: Resumen En este trabajo abordamos el problema del acceso a la justicia que enfrentan actualmente las víctimas de delitos de lesa humanidad cometidos en la dictadura cívico militar en Chile y la deficiente cobertura de la política reparatoria del Estado, al tiempo que resaltamos el rol que puede cumplir la universidad en la provisión de servicios jurídicos y en el trabajo interdisciplinar e intersectorial en este tipo de casos. En concreto, abordamos el caso del Consultorio Jurídico y Clínica de Derechos Humanos de la Escuela de Derecho de la Universidad de Valparaíso (Chile). Empleamos el método cualitativo de sistematización de experiencias, utilizando técnicas de recolección de datos como la revisión de fuentes secundarias, observación del trabajo desarrollado en la entidad y entrevistas a cuatro actores clave. Los resultados del análisis permiten ilustrar la contribución social que realiza dicha Clínica en la Región de Valparaíso mediante la tramitación de causas judiciales, así como su aporte al desarrollo de políticas de justicia transicional en materia de reparación a las víctimas. Permite, asimismo, visibilizar dificultades y posibles mejoras en la tramitación de dichos casos.Abstract In this article, we address the access to justice problem currently faced by victims of crimes against humanity committed under the civil-military dictatorship in Chile and the deficient state coverage of the reparatory policy. We highlight the university's role in the provision of legal services and the interdisciplinary and intersectoral work in this matter. To do this, we address the case of the legal consulting and Human Rights Clinic of the Law School of the University of Valparaíso (Chile). We use a qualitative method of systematization of experiences, relying on data collection techniques such as secondary sources review, observation, and four interviews to key informants. The results of the analysis allow us to illustrate the social contribution that this Clinic makes in the Valparaíso Region by means of the processing of legal cases, as well as its contribution to the development of transitional justice policies regarding victims' reparation. It also makes it possible to make visible difficulties and possible improvements in the processing of such cases. The systematization carried out is an example for this type of initiative to be implemented in other universities throughout the country, providing the students who graduated from the Law career with transversal competencies to litigate, in the criminal jurisdiction cases about crimes of It hurts humanity.
       
  • Are police deceptions that are not expressly permitted prohibited'
           Undercover operations, undercover agents and fundamental rights

    • Abstract: Resumen: La ley española permite expresamente algunos engaños policiales: aquellos autorizados judicialmente con el objetivo de perseguir la delincuencia organizada (art. 282 bis LECrim). El objetivo de este trabajo consiste en determinar si el resto de engaños policiales ―es decir, aquellos que no están autorizados judicialmente y/o persiguen otra clase de delincuencia―, además de no estar expresamente permitidos, también están prohibidos. Para ello se empieza negando que, en general, las actuaciones policiales que no se encuentran expresamente permitidas estén prohibidas. De este modo, se pone de manifiesto que los engaños policiales solo estarán prohibidos si, además de no encontrarse expresamente permitidos, restringen algún derecho fundamental. A continuación, se analiza la eventual incidencia de dichos engaños sobre el secreto de las comunicaciones, el derecho a la autodeterminación informativa, la intimidad y el derecho a no autoincriminarse. Finalmente, se concluye que, en su conjunto, los engaños policiales no restringen derechos fundamentales y, por tanto, no están prohibidos aunque carezcan de apoyo legal expreso. Esto pone de relieve que la ley española, mediante su art. 282 bis LECrim, permite expresamente más conductas de las que, sin dicho precepto, estarían prohibidas.Abstract: Spaniard law expressly allows some police deceptions: those judicially authorized with the aim of prosecuting organized crime (art. 282 bis LECrim). The aim of this article is to determine if the rest of police deceptions - the ones that are not judicially authorized and/or pursue another kind of crime- are prohibited. To this end, we begin by denying that, in general, those police interventions that are not specifically permitted are forbidden. Thus, we evidence that the police deceptions that are not expressly permitted are only prohibited if they restrict a fundamental right. Next, we analyze the potential incidence of those deceptions on the right to privacy of communications, the informational self-determination right, the privacy and the right of non self-incrimination. Finally, we conclude that police deceptions are not restrictive of any fundamental right, therefore they are not forbidden even if they lack an express legal support. This highlights the fact that Spaniard law, through its art. 282 bis LECrim, expressly permits more conducts than would otherwise be prohibited.
       
  • The deprivation of the proceeds of corrupt political party financing. Some
           elements for a criminal policy debate

    • Abstract: Resumen: Entre los retos de la política criminal contra la corrupción ocupa un lugar importante el de privar a los corruptos de los bienes que han obtenido de forma ilícita. Al respecto, los convenios internacionales anticorrupción han promocionado, entre otros, dos instrumentos penales que constituyen una parte esencial de la estrategia político-criminal contra la delincuencia que opera con fines de lucro. En particular, por un lado, el decomiso como medio para despojar a los corruptos de sus ganancias delictivas; y, por otro lado, el blanqueo de capitales para prevenir que los bienes de origen delictivo se inserten en el tráfico económico con la apariencia de ser lícitos. Este trabajo es una aproximación al reto de desposeer a los partidos políticos de las ganancias que obtienen de la corrupción política. A tal efecto se abordan determinados interrogantes -¿la financiación corrupta de la política es solamente una criminalidad con fines lucrativos' y, de no ser así, ¿cuál es el beneficio adicional que reporta a los partidos políticos esta clase de corrupción'- que servirán de guía para reflexionar acerca de cuál es el papel que puede desempeñar el derecho penal en esta materia.Abstract: Among the challenges of criminal justice policies against corruption, depriving corrupt individuals from their illicitly obtained proceeds has an important role to play. In this respect, the international anti-corruption conventions have developed, among others, two criminal instruments that constitute an essential part of the political-criminal strategy against criminality for profit. In particular, on the one hand, confiscation as a means to deprive the corrupt individuals of their criminal gains; and, on the other hand, money laundering to prevent proceeds derived from crime from being used in the economic traffic under the appearance of being lawful. This paper is an approach to the challenge of depriving political parties of the profits they make from political corruption. To this end, this paper addresses the following questions: Is the corrupt financing of politics only a criminality for profit and, if not, what is the additional benefit that this kind of corruption brings to political parties' - which will serve as a guide to reflect on the role that criminal law can play in this matter.
       
  • Restorative juvenile penal mediation in the framework of the new National
           youth social reintegration service in Chile: principles and foundations of
           a technical standard

    • Abstract: Resumen: El Gobierno de Chile, frente a la ley de responsabilidad penal adolescente y la Convención de los derechos del niño/a, en el año 2018 presentó un proyecto que crea el Servicio nacional de reinserción social juvenil -introduciendo modificaciones en el sistema de justicia criminal juvenil -, y el Programa de mediación penal juvenil basado en los principios de la justicia restaurativa. Este artículo propone los principios y fundamentos de una norma técnica asociada a los procesos de gestión que permitirían asegurar la calidad del proceso y de los servicios ofrecidos. La metodología contempló un diseño cualitativo, desde la revisión de fuentes bibliográficas, 18 entrevistas, 8 grupos focales, 2 paneles de expertos y 5 reuniones de validación con contrapartes técnicas gubernamentales. Su aplicación arrojó cuatro principios para la norma técnica: especialidad, inclusión, accesibilidad e integralidad, que deberán traducirse en una definición operacional que se aproxime a los sistemas de implementación, resguardando los estándares de calidad asociados.Abstract. In 2018, the Government of Chile proposed a law project creating the National Youth Social Reintegration Service, modifying the current youth criminal justice system and incorporating a new national Victim-Offender Mediation Program, based on the principles of restorative justice. This article proposes the principles and foundations for technical standards associated with the management processes that aim to ensure the quality of the processes and services offered. Our methods relied on a qualitative design, including interviews, focus groups, expert panels, and validation meetings with government technical counterparts. The findings showed four principles to guide a technical standard: specialty, inclusion, accessibility and integrality, which should be translated into an operational definition that approach to implementation systems, safeguarding quality standards.
       
  • Enforcement and non-compliance with community penalties: the back-up
           sanction in the Chilean model

    • Abstract: Resumen Este trabajo desarrolla el problema del incumplimiento de las penas alternativas desde una perspectiva amplia (no localizada en un sistema jurídico concreto), tomando en cuenta su relevancia político criminal y estudiando su tratamiento normativo. Se sostiene que existe una necesidad sistémica de responder ante el incumplimiento de una pena, se describe el problema que genera la imposibilidad de una ejecución forzada de las penas que se cumplen en libertad y las posibilidades de reacción del sistema penal ante tal incumplimiento. Estas posibilidades se analizan desde las propuestas que se han realizado desde las dos principales teorías de los fines de la pena (retribucionismo y utilitarismo), tomando especialmente en cuenta el lugar que debe ocupar la ejecución de una pena privativa de libertad en ese contexto. Finalmente, se realiza un estudio normativo y jurisprudencial de las consecuencias que el sistema penal chileno prevé en casos de incumplimiento de las penas alternativas, utilizando las propuestas revisadas anteriormente para analizarlas críticamente.Abstract This paper examines non-compliance with community penalties from a wide point of view (without attaching it to a specific jurisdiction). It argues that there is a systemic need to respond to non-compliance of a penal sanction. It also describes the impossibility of enforcement of penal sanctions that are supposed to be executed in liberty and the possibilities of the penal system to react to that kind on non-compliance. These possibilities are analyzed from the proposals made by the two main groups of theories of punishment (retributive theory and deterrence theory). Finally, legal consequences to non-compliance in the Chilean legal system are studied (law and jurisprudence), comparing them with the standards and proposals developed earlier.
       
  • What is the criminal policy model in Chile'

    • Abstract: Resumen El objetivo de este trabajo es exponer que la evolución de la política criminal chilena desde la reforma procesal penal (2000) es más compleja y contradictoria de lo que la doctrina usualmente afirma sobre ella. Así, se ha tendido a calificarla como una manifestación del denominado modelo penal de seguridad ciudadana, poniendo especial énfasis en su carácter populista y punitivista. Por el contrario, los medios de comunicación, los representantes políticos y la población en general han evaluado no tanto las reformas penales, sino el sistema penal chileno en su conjunto como excesivamente garantista. De este modo, y con el fin de evitar evaluaciones precipitadas, sesgadas y populistas, proponemos un marco analítico a partir de los modelos de política-criminal identificados por la literatura internacional, dado que ese cuerpo teórico constituye un método cabal y fiable para comprender el sistema penal chileno. Así, este marco conceptual cuenta con nueve indicadores político criminales que permiten reconstruir con mayor precisión las diferentes tendencias acaecidas en Chile desde la reforma procesal penal. Por tanto, podemos concluir que en el sistema chileno prevalece el modelo securitario, pero, al igual que en todos los sistemas penales democráticos, concurren manifestaciones de otros modelos político criminales (modelos híbridos).Abstract: The objective of this work is to show that the evolution of Chilean criminal policy since the criminal procedure reform (2000) is more complex and contradictory than what the doctrine usually affirms about it. Thus, it has tended to be classified as a manifestation of the so-called criminal model of citizen security, placing special emphasis on its populist and punitive nature. On the contrary, mass media, political representatives and public opinion have evaluated the Chilean penal system as overprotect the rights of accused and restrain excessively the state's use of power to punish and prevent criminal behaviors. In this way, and in order to avoid hasty, biased and populist evaluations, we propose an analytical framework based on the crime-policy models identified by the international literature, given that this theoretical body constitutes a complete and reliable method to understand our penal system. This conceptual framework has nine criminal political indicators that allow us to reconstruct with greater precision the different trends that have occurred in Chile since the criminal procedure reform. We can conclude that the model of citizen security prevails in the Chilean penal system, but, as in all democratic penal systems, there are manifestations of other criminal political models (hybrid models).
       
  • The legal structure of false testimony and perjury

    • Abstract: Resumen La regulación vigente del Código Penal contempla un tipo de falso testimonio en el art. 206, una figura híbrida de perjurio y falso testimonio en el art. 210 y una figura residual de perjurio en el art. 212. Hasta ahora, la doctrina, en contraste con la jurisprudencia, ha prestado más atención al tipo de falso testimonio que a las normas sobre perjurio, sin siquiera preguntarse por la razón que pudiera justificar la existencia de dos normas sobre el mismo delito. A partir de un análisis de la estructura y contenido de injusto del tipo de falso testimonio, el presente trabajo ofrece una propuesta de delimitación del ámbito de aplicación de tales normas que al mismo tiempo se sustenta en una diferenciación del contenido de injusto descrito por el tipo del art. 210 y por el tipo del art. 212.Summary The current regulation of the Chilean Criminal Code establishes a crime of false testimony (art. 206), a hybrid crime of perjury and false testimony (art. 210), and a residual crime of perjury (art. 212). Until now, the doctrine, in contrast to the jurisprudence, has paid more attention to the crime of false testimony than to the crime of perjury, without even questioning the reason that could justify the existence of two precepts regulating the same crime. Starting from an analysis of the structure and content of the wrongfulness of the crime of false testimony, the present work offers a proposal for delimiting the scope of such norms, based on a differentiation of the content of wrongfulness of the crime of art. 210 from by the crime of art. 212.Zusammenfassung Die geltende Regelung des Strafgesetzbuchs sieht einen Tatbestand der Falschaussage in Artikel 206, einen Hybridtatbestand des Meineids und der Falschaussage in Art. 210, sowie einen Auffangtatbestand des Meineids in Art. 212, vor. Im Gegensatz zur Rechtsprechung hat die Lehre dem Tatbestand der Falschaussage bisher mehr Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt als den Normen bezüglich des Meineids, ohne gar in Frage zu stellen, welcher der Grund für die Existenz zweier Normen zum selben Delikt rechtfertigen könnte. Begründet auf einer Analyse der Struktur und des Unrechtsgehalts des Tatbestandes der Falschaussage leistet die vorliegende Untersuchung einen Beitrag zur Abgrenzung der Reichweite dieser Normen, der zugleich auf einer Ausdifferenzierung des von beiden Meineidstatbeständen beschriebenen Unrechtsgehalts basiert.
       
  • Legal formalism and its overcoming according to legal principles in the
           scholarship of Álvaro Bunster Briceño

    • Abstract: Resumen: El artículo ofrece un panorama completo de la enorme obra del penalista Álvaro Bunster Briceño, poco conocida en Chile, pese a que el autor fue el maestro de muchos de los principales penalistas del país de la segunda mitad del siglo XX. El artículo explica la evolución que llevó a este autor desde su inicial filiación al formalismo de la escuela italiana liderada por Filippo Grispigni, hacia una ciencia penal basada en principios y fines inmanentes al ordenamiento jurídico. Un ejemplo de esta evolución es el estudio de Busnter sobre la legítima defensa contra regímenes políticos tiránicos.Abstract: The article provides a complete overview of the vast scholarship of the criminal lawyer Álvaro Bunster Briceño, little known in Chile, despite the fact that the author was mentor of many of the country's leading criminal lawyers in the second half of the 20th century. The article explains the evolution that led this author from his initial affiliation to the formalism of the Italian school led by Filippo Grispigni, towards a criminal science based on principles and purposes immanent to the legal system. An example of this evolution is the Busnter's study on self-defense against tyrannical political regimes.
       
  • Democratic participation and the role of the prosecutor as representative
           of the political community

    • Abstract: Resumen En este trabajo voy a presentar los momentos particulares en los que la comunidad política hace escuchar su voz. Primero, argumentaré que en una comunidad política democrática ideal, los fiscales siempre deben actuar y hablar en nombre de la comunidad política, independientemente de cómo sean elegidos. Los fiscales deben representar a la comunidad política, en particular, durante el proceso penal en dos circunstancias específicas: cuando deciden llamar a rendir cuentas a un conciudadano y cuando deciden no procesar a alguien aplicando diferentes criterios de discrecionalidad. Segundo, sostendré la idea de que la comunidad política también debería desempeñar un papel importante después del juicio. Uno de los objetivos del juicio podría ser que el acusado se arrepienta y se disculpe después de pensar y reflexionar sobre la censura de la comunidad política en la que vive.Abstract In this article, I will present the particular moments in which the political community makes its voice heard. First, I will argue that in an ideal democratic political community, prosecutors should always act and speak on behalf of the political community, regardless of how they are elected. Prosecutors must represent the political community during criminal proceedings, particularly in two specific stages: when they decide to call a fellow citizen to account and when they decide not to prosecute someone using different discretion criteria. I will also argue that the political community should also play an important role after the trial. One of the goals of the trial could be for the accused to repent and apologize after thinking and reflecting on the censorship of the political community in which he lives.
       
  • Perceções de mulheres em situação de reclusão face às visitas:
           contributos para práticas e políticas

    • Abstract: Resumo O presente estudo procura caraterizar a perceção das mulheres em reclusão sobre o papel que as visitas desempenham durante o cumprimento da pena. Foram entrevistadas 15 mulheres numa prisão feminina do Brasil, organizando-se as suas respostas em áreas temáticas. Os resultados mostram que para as mulheres, as visitas são fundamentais para expressar afetos e para proporcionar a oportunidade de tomar conhecimento de notícias sobre os seus familiares e amigos, manifestando as dificuldades que supõe o afastamento da família. Analisamos os obstáculos percebidos à realização de visitas durante o tempo de reclusão e os efeitos que a suspensão das visitas têm nas mulheres em reclusão e nos seus familiares. Concluímos o estudo com uma reflexão sobre os contributos dos nossos resultados para as políticas e práticas prisionais, ressaltando a necessidade do sistema prisional brasileiro valorizar devidamente a importância das visitas para a manutenção dos laços familiares durante o cumprimento da pena.Abstract The purpose of this study was to describe incarcerated women´s perceptions about the role that prison visits play during imprisonment. Fifteen incarcerated Brasilian women were interviewed. Using a thematic analysis procedure, their answers were organized in different areas. We reflect on the importance of visits to avoid desocialization along with a prison sentence, as well as a motivating element for good behavior in prison. Women perceive visits as important because they satisfy their need for affection, as well provides the opportunity to hear news of their family and friends, expressing uneasiness for being separated from family. Likewise, we review perceived obstacles to receiving visits in prison and the effects that suspended visits have on women and their families. Finally, we reflect on the contributions of our results to professional policies and practices, highlighting the need that the Brazilian prison system has to value visits to maintain family ties during imprisonment.
