Abstract: »The purpose of this study is to reflect on the injustice of political transitions, highlighting the dilemmas of Latin American countries with the violence of the past military dictatorships. Argentina, Chile and Uruguay are examples of countries that punish those politicians who committed crimes during the military dictatorship. However, Brazil's judgment complaint of breach of Principle Precept no. 153 by the Supreme Court by seven votes to two was the rejection of the application of the Order of Lawyers of Brazil for the punishment of acts of torture during the military regime. Moreover, even with the sentencing by the Brazilian Inter-American Court of Human Rights by the understanding that crimes against humanity can not be amnestied by domestic law led Brazil to repeal the law of amnesty. The State must ensure democracy, popular participation and non-infringement of human rights in order to effectively achieve the democratic rule of law.« (Source: RIDB)
