Coercive Measures

The use of coercive measures represent a means by which the detainees express their disagreement and make their claims visible to the Judicial Power and the Federal Penitentiary Service. They are used when the institutional channels are exhausted or obstructed to solve the problem. These are tools that allow the mobilization of instances, both administrative and judicial, and, in some cases, the demands of the prisoners reach recognition by the prison authorities.

Therefore, the PPN participates in each case that takes knowledge in order to channel these demands to obtain favorable results. Since 2014, these episodes have been recorded based on the application of the Protocol of action against the use of forcible measures in confinement places. The emerging information nourishes the Coercive Measures Database - PPN.
