On the morning of this Thursday, September 21st, the director-president of the International Identification Institute (InterID), Célio Ribeiro, had the opportunity to speak with the Minister of Finance, Fernando Haddad, in Brasília-DF.
On the occasion, Ribeiro explained to the minister about the National Identity Card (CIN) project, highlighting its resolving potential in relation to fraud that causes losses in the order of billions of reais per year to the treasury. “The CIN, in addition to being our greatest citizenship instrument, can prevent public coffers from being looted. A weak identity allows criminals to receive benefits from the state and, therefore, deprives true beneficiaries of the opportunity to obtain what is rightfully theirs,” he highlighted.
In the opinion of the InterID representative, Minister Hadad showed a lot of interest in the topic, to which Ribeiro committed to sending more information so that the department, as far as it was concerned, could adopt measures to support the implementation of the CIN in Brazilian states.
