On April 7, appellate judge Carmo Antônio de Souza showed up for the 1186th Ordinary Session of the Single Chamber. The session was being held via Zoom and judge de Souza didn’t realize his camera was on when he sat down shirtless to convene with the other members of the Amapá State Court of Justice.
The Amapá State Court of Justice investigated and exonerated him, saying in a statement:
Carmo Antonio de Souza, without realising that his equipment was turned on, minutes before the official start of the session, briefly appeared topless. The practice of carrying out judicial sessions by videoconference is a recent development. In this sense, the occurrence of incidents such as this is perfectly understandable.”
It’s great that everyone is taking his honest mistake in stride! We all have to pull together in the pandemic!
