What the Police Say
The Civil Police of Paraná (PC-PR) reported that the understanding of the Court of the Audit of Military Justice is that cases of death in confrontation with military police are considered military crimes. Therefore, the attribution for these investigations will be of the Military Police.
“In previous cases in which PC-PR acted carrying out investigations in similar cases, the later understanding of justice was that the investigation would fall to the Military Police”.
