Prof. Mons Fabbri Guest of Honour of a Seminar at the Lisbon State University

On the 26th of January 2012 the Most Reverend Monsignor Fabio Fabbri,  Professor of our Pro Deo State University and Prelate of Honour of His Holiness the Pope, delivered the opening and most important speech at the Seminar " Deprivation of Freedom as Penal Sanction and the Dignity of the Human Person"  organized by the Law Faculty of the Lisbon State University.

Both Professor Doctor Eduardo Vera-Cruz Pinto, Director of the Law faculty and Professor Doctor Pedro Romano Martinez, President of the Scientific Board of the Faculty, have made an the subject of the Seminar and have introduced the Most Reverend Mons. Fabio Fabbri to the audience.

The first part of this Seminar, which took place in the Auditorium of the Law Faculty, consisted only of the speech of the Most Rev. Mons. Fabbri, and at the Speaker's Table were also Professor Master Susana Videira, representing H.E. the Minister of Justice of Portugal and Prof. Doctor Maria Fernanda Palma, Full Professor of the Law Faculty ( photo below ).  In his very interesting  speech, enriched by episodes of his very long experience in this field, Monsignor Fabbri, touched deeply the audience by underlining the following points which can summarize the content of his verbal address :  " ...the prisoner IS in the jail, but he does not BELONG to the jail ... ", ".... the imprisonment of a man has to be the LAST option of the Society ... " and also that  "... sometimes a Penal Sanction is a form of social vengeance...".
