FrenID promotes Public Hearing in the Chamber

The Joint Parliamentary Front for the Guarantee of the Right to Identity (FrenID) proposed the holding of a Public Hearing in order to discuss the Identification Program in Brazil, focusing especially on neonatal identification and the fight against kidnapping of children and adolescents throughout the national territory . The request for holding Public Hearing No. 36/2023, signed by FrenID’s general coordinator, Federal Deputy Flávia Morais (PDT), was approved by the Social Security, Social Assistance, Childhood, Adolescence and Family Commission together with the Public Security and Combating Organized Crime.

In the justification presented by FrenID’s general coordinator, the purposes and objectives of the parliamentary front were reinforced. In addition, it was highlighted that the National Identity Card (CIN) has the ability to assuage several problematic issues in Brazil. The parliamentarian argued that Brazil’s Identification Program should follow the example of other nations, aiming to reduce the occurrence of exchanges of babies in maternity hospitals, child abductions, under-registration and disappearances of people. The proposal is that the program works as a unified identification system, with a single document.

Those invited to the Public Hearing, which is scheduled for August 30th, include the executive secretary of FrenID, Célio Ribeiro, the assistant executive secretary of the Civil House of the Presidency of the Republic, Pedro Pontual, the National Secretary of Promotion and Defense of Human Rights, Isadora Brandão Araújo da Silva, the Secretary for Health and Environment Surveillance, Ethel Leonor Noia Maciel, the National Secretary for Digital Government, Rogério Mascarenhas, the Chief Judge of the 2nd Children and Youth Court of Recife, Élio Braz Mendes, as well as representatives of the National Secretariat for the Rights of Children and Adolescents and the National Council for the Rights of Children and Adolescents (CONANDA).
