Brazilian Jewish officials hail nation`s first anti-terrorism law

Brazil enacted its very first anti-terrorism law, for which Jewish officials had promoted.
President Dilma Rousseff authorized the legislation this week requiring 12 to 30 years in a high-security prison for dedicating an act of terrorism in Latin America`s biggest nation. Thirty years is the maximum length of imprisonment under Brazilian criminal law.

Officials of the Brazilian Israelite Confederation, the nation`s umbrella Jewish organization known as CONIB, had highly supported the legislation, consisting of writing Op-Eds in assistance that appeared in influential newspapers and publications.
CONIB President Fernardo Lottenberg stated the law makes Brazil and the Jewish community and better prepared to deal with the growing global risk of terrorism.
