The National Council of Justice (CNJ) launches, next Tuesday (16/8), the National System of Assets Investigation and Recovery of Assets (Sniper), a tool that centralizes the asset and property databases to speed up the of process execution. Dorotheo Barbosa Neto, assistant judge of the CNJ presidency who is heading the project, explains, in an interview with JOTA, that in addition to reducing a process from months to seconds, the technology also produces graphic representations that will help the magistrates.
Sniper makes it possible to quickly consult different open and closed databases, with the possibility of including new information bases. Data of individuals and legal entities may be accessed by name, CPF, corporate name, trade name or CNPJ.
According to Justice in Numbers, 58% of pending cases are in the execution phase. “In a medium-duty Rod, the search for all the necessary data would take months, while the Sniper can do this information union in five or six seconds”, highlights Neto.
The program's databases already contain data such as CPF and CNPJ, the databases of candidates and declared assets (TSE), information on administrative sanctions, companies punished and leniency agreements (CGU), data from the Brazilian Aeronautical Registry (Anac), vessels listed in the Brazilian Special Registry (Maritime Court) and information about legal proceedings, such as parties, class, subject of the proceedings and values ??(procedural header, from the CNJ). It is also possible to add new information bases.
Within the platform, property and corporate information, property relationships, relationships with other people are visually translated. This information can be exported and appended to the process. “This helps in the appeal phase. Instead of describing the activity of an economic group in four or five decision pages, for example, Sniper visually shows which companies are interconnected. The judicial decisions that based that research are expressed visually, which increases the speed of understanding of the magistrates”, explains Neto.
The system can only be accessed by authorized users and with a decision to break confidentiality. “Any and all Sniper research needs to be endo-process, it must be process-related. In addition, the entire research result has to be exported to the process”, observes the judge. Neto also explains that the data produced by the tool must be checked and authenticated in its source base.
The tool is one of the projects of the Justice 4.0 Program, an initiative of the CNJ, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Federal Justice Council (CJF). ??The program also has the support of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE). ), Superior Council of Labor Justice (CSJT) and Superior Court of Justice (STJ). As it is integrated with the Digital Platform of the Judiciary (PDPJ-Br), there is no need for additional development by the courts.
