Short Update: Brazil Ministry of Justice allows communication via e-mail between prisoners and registered family members/visitors

FairTrialsAdmin - April 2, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Prison conditions

The Brazil Ministry of Justice has established rules for the use of the virtual letter as an exceptional and temporary measure to communication between relatives/visitors registered with prisoners in federal penitentiaries. The letters are sent by email, which will be received and reviewed by prison technicians. After approval, they are sent to the inmates. Up to two registered family members/visitors may send the virtual letter to the prisoner, who you will be authorized to receive one message per week. Each virtual letter must contain a maximum of three lines with a text message.
