CADE’s Tribunal, during the trial of Administrative Proceeding no. 08012.003321/2007-71 on 04/13, in its 83rd session, presented the authority’s stance on the possibility of using wiretaps as evidence. After dismissing claims of illegality, CADE clarified that only a judge could determine that a wiretap be carried out, but there would be no obstacle to using this evidence in administrative procedures. The authority reiterated that, although the audio files of the conversation were not present in the case files, an integral transcript was presented; and that there would be no harm in presenting a partial transcript containing only what is relevant to the investigation, so as to not unnecessarily violate privacy. It concluded that the parties did not prove any procedural harm, since the evidence was subjected to scrutiny and comments.
