Habilitation Program

The Judicial Prosecutor’s Office is part of the Judiciary (different from the prosecutors of the Public Prosecutor’s Office, responsible for criminal prosecution). It is a supporting institution of the administration of justice, which is exercised by the Judicial Prosecutor of the Supreme Court, who is the head of the service, and by the judicial prosecutors of the Courts of Appeals. The functions of the judicial prosecutor’s office are limited to judicial matters and those of an administrative nature of the State, in which a law especially requires its intervention.
