InterID repudiates criminal acts and provides support and techincal cooperations to the Federal Government to identify those responsible

By means of a file sent to the ministries of the Civil House, Justice and Public Security, Management and Innovation in Public Services, the Special Secretariat for Institutional Relations and the General Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic, the International Institute of Identification (InterID) repudiated the criminal acts committed on Sunday, January 8th, at Praça dos Três Poderes, in Brasília, and made itself available to the departments for support and technical cooperation with the Federal Government, with a view to identifying those responsible.

“We hope that public authorities can take the appropriate steps to hold those involved accountable. InterID wants to collaborate with the Federal Government so that all those who caused damage are duly identified”, highlighted Célio Ribeiro, CEO of InterID.

As Ribeiro explained, the institute's objective is to collaborate with the public authorities and, thus, restore order as soon as possible. “We have qualified technical personnel in our staff, as well as in our partner members who are knowledgeable in identity platforms and systems, collection and biometric identification of the identification bodies of the Federation units to join efforts on this very important front. We cannot sit back and demand solutions, even more so when we know our ability to help in the proper identification of those who practiced vandalism and all sorts of violence in Brasília during the acts of the last January 8th.”
