Superior Military Court Highlights Use Of Blockchain In Lawsuits

The Military Justice of the Union in Brazil was established more than 200 years ago and is the oldest in the country. And its maximum representative, the Superior Military Court (STM), last Tuesday saw a promising culmination of the use of blockchain technology in an event (3), which could develop its relationship with processes.

With the mission to promote training for military magistrates, ENAJUM promotes the “Symposium on Cybercrime in the Context of JMU“, started last Monday (2). It is worth remembering that the Military Justice takes care of the armed forces (army, air force and navy), as well as some civil cases.

The course is being promoted by the National School of Training and Improvement of Military Justice Magistrates of the Union (ENAJUM), which will complete the work this Wednesday (4).

According to the STM, the foundations for the evolution of the JMU processes must follow the philosophy of military justice, the same one that was applied to the Roman army centuries ago.

“The aim of the course is to provide federal military justice magistrates with an opportunity to reflect on cybercrime, taking into account the different demands of their professional activity in military justice.”

Superior Military Court Knows Blockchain Potential in Lawsuits

Goiás Civil Police deputy and cybercrime specialist Vytautas Fabiano Silva Zumas attended the STM event last Tuesday, when he spoke about blockchain technology. This is a personal event in Brasília that has invited several experts in the field of Internet crime to speak on various topics.

According to Zumas, the blockchain is one of the tools that justice could use against crimes. This technology is the same that works in cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin for example.

The benefits of using blockchain would be several, the delegate said at the Superior Military Court event, focusing on the preservation and sharing of criminal evidence. In addition, it is able to guarantee integrity, traceability, authenticity and immortality.

To circumvent the security of the blockchain, hacker would face difficulties, the speaker emphasized blockchain specialist, as the data is distributed.

“An attack on one or several of the storage machines would not compromise the information stored because everyone else has the same information.”

Police work can be improved, as can the judiciary

In his experience using blockchain, Zumas also highlighted the work of the Civil Police, which could be significantly improved with the technology.

“Nowadays, if civil police don’t digitize a document, they won’t be able to upload a simple piece of evidence to the judiciary’s electronic system. With blockchain, this would end. Everything is automated and made available to participants within seconds, with a lot of transparency and security in the administration”.

Blockchain could thus be widely used by the Brazilian justice system, including the military, to improve existing problems.

Asked about the barriers to adopting the technology, Vytautas said he didn’t know if the Brazilian justice system already plans to use it on a large scale, but the Brazilian state could do so at no great cost, civil police say. officer.
