National asset investigation and asset recovery system - "Sniper
The National Council of Justice (CNJ) launched on 08/16/2022 a new tool to "speed up and centralize the search for assets and assets in several databases", which was called the National System for Asset Investigation and Asset Recovery - "Sniper".
The main function of the new tool is to facilitate searches for the debtor's assets in execution and compliance actions, which are often lengthy or frustrated due to the difficulty of locating existing goods and assets on behalf of debtors.
Sniper will be executed by cross-referencing data and information from several databases and will use a graph format, which will allow the identification of asset links between individuals and legal entities, such as economic groups and relationships with other natural and legal persons, in order to promote agility and efficiency in the asset search. The system also allows the constant updating of the database and information in which the search will be carried out.
Access to the tool is exclusive to judges and court servers of the courts integrated to the Digital Platform of the Judiciary (PDPJ), and requires a decision to break confidentiality. In order to consult the system, which is already available in some courts, lawyers must make a request in the case records, indicating the debtor's name, CPF, company name, or CNPJ.
