Abstract

This article, from the theoretical discussions on torture, seeks to analyze what the Judiciary Power considers torture, by analyzing declassifying court decisions from the Court of Appeals. Thus, what is taken into consideration is the discussion about the establishment of torture as a common crime as well as its apparent conflict with other crimes. The importance of judicial decisions for the shaping of law is also considered. Finally, the article seeks to understand exactly what are the differentiating elements between torture and other crimes (such as abuse, physical injury and abuse of authority, for example) weighted by the judges.
