INTERNATIONAL LEGAL COOPERATION BETWEEN BRAZIL AND CHINA AND THE CRIMINAL SUIT DURING DEFAULT JUDGEMENTS REGARDING THE CRIME OF MONEY LAUNDERING: A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF BOTH BRAZILIAN AND CHINESE LAWS
This article aims to understand the dynamics between Chinese and Brazilian legal systems about money laundering prosecution in default judgments and its implementation in international legal cooperation. Therefore, both legal basis are analyzed and common dispositions studied for the complete comprehension in how China and Brazil can act in complementary ways. To conclude, the article demonstrates that a trial in absentia may prevent extradition for serving a sentence, if a new trial is not ensured in the requesting country. On the other hand, if extradition is used for the accused to respond to the process, the purpose of the act is precisely to prevent default. Likewise, for the other cases of assistance, if the default has been operated in compliance with the legislation of the requesting country, there will be no impediment to cooperation.
